ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Tanner Mangum proved to be a new kind of dual-threat quarterback.

The four-star quarterback from Eagle (Idaho) High School began Thursday night's Under Armour All-America Game as a quarterback for the White team. He was forced to switch sides during halftime after the three quarterbacks on the Black team's roster were unable to play because of minor injuries.
