Bears First Scrimmage a Success

Berkeley - Eleven days into its fall camp, the California football team scrimmaged for the first time at Memorial Stadium, as quarterbacks Nate Longshore, Kevin Riley and Brock Mansion all got reps on Thursday evening.

"I thought for a first scrimmage, it was pretty clean," said head coach Jeff Tedford. "It was pretty penalty-free for the most part; with it being the first day handling the clock and game situations, I was impressed by how that happened. We still need to get a lot better in certain situations so we'll continue to work at those. For the most part, I thought it was well-organized and the kids did a nice job."

Riley, who took his first snap under center with the second unit drove the team down the field, culminating with a three-yard touchdown throw in the back corner of the end zone to LaReylle Cunningham.

Freshman Covaughn DeBoskie was the beneficiary of a 1-yard touchdown run when Mansion drove the third team down the field in the third possession of the scrimmage.

Longshore, later in the scrimmage, hooked up with senior Sean Young, who made a sliding catch in the end zone.
