Avery led the Broncos in receiving with three catches for 32 yards but found the going tough on the ground with seven carries for 10 yards. Jarvis Hodge sported an 8.3 yards-per-carry average, though, totaling 50 yards on six carries. Receiver Aiona Key also had a nice 29-yard run on a reverse.
Junior quarterback Bush Hamdan enjoyed a solid effort, hitting 5-of-7 passes for 34 yards, while sophomore Nick Lomax was a perfect 3-of-3 for 30 yards. Freshman Mike Coughlin, who was the most successful of the Bronco quarterbacks in the first scrimmage, was 3-6 for 58 yards today but suffered two interceptions.
Linebacker Tim Brady picked off the first Coughlin pass and sped 40 yards into the end zone, while safety Marty Tadman was credited with the second interception. Tadman also ran another interception back 94 yards as he is known to do during the red-zone offensive series.
Bissell finished with two catches for 50 yards, with Jeremy Childs grabbing two passes for 49. Nick Harris showed a few things with three catches for 30 yards while Evan Surratt hauled in three for 21.
The Bronco defense held the offense to just 50 yards rushing on 20 carries.
The Broncos close out spring ball with the annual Blue & Orange Game, set for next Friday night, April 13th at 6 in Bronco Stadium. A crowd of 10-15,000 is expected to preview the new Bronco team.
