Scrimmage Report

In the Spring Baseball, Pitching (defense) is usually ahead hitting (offense). Football is no different this time of year. In today's scrimmage at Sun Devil stadium, the players in white made one big play after another. Nevertheless, some of the Sun Devils offensive weapons showed promising ability to make the big play.

No quarterback distinguished himself today. Surprisingly, it was Chad Christensen who statistically had the best day passing for 5 of 8 for 85 yards and a TD pass to Hakim Hill. Andrew Walter was 8-14 for 72 yards and an interception to Riccardo Stewart. Andy Goodenough was 5-11 for 35 yards. The running backs didn't have much room to run, but did make the most of the opportunities presented to them. Hakim Hill dazzled those in attendance with 9 carries for 39 yards. Cornell Canidate had a solid game too with 30 yards on 4 carries, including a 27-yard TD. Gerald McKinney was a pleasant surprise with 5 carries for 30 yards. Mike Williams was relatively quiet with 16 yards on 5 carries. Christensen complimented his fine pass game with 20 yards on 2 carries.

Shaun McDonald was outstanding in the passing game with 62 yards on 4 catches. Matt Miller continued his fine spring performance with 5 catches for 40 yards. Hill had a 45-yard touchdown via the air. Justin Taplin had 2 catches for 17 yards, and Daryl Lightfoot had one catch for six yards. It seemed that on defense everyone was making plays. Terrell Suggs, Mason Unck, Jason Shivers, Al Williams, Brett Hudson, and O.J. Hackett stood out today. In the kicking department, starter Mike Barth was 5 of 8, Greg Pieratt 2-2, and Brian Biang 2-6. The punting game was fair.
