Here are the statistics we got after the scrimmage:

Butler Benton 6 carries for 9 yards
Bradley Glatthaar 3 carries for 11 yards
Jacob Ramsey 5 carries for 8 yards
Craig Carey 4 carries for 19 yards
John Goebel 1 carry for 2 yards
I did not get any stats for Greg Moore
Marcus Barnett 2 catches for 77 yards
David Wess 2 catches for 43 yards
Dominick Goodman 2 catches for 14 yards
Antwuan Giddens 1 catch for 38 yards
Charley Howard 2 catches for 30 yards

I know Binns, Shoemaker and DeFilippo also had catches.
-The place kicking was below par prior to the actual scrimmage. Jake Rogers missed an extra point and had another one blocked. Jake also missed badly on a 40 yarder. Brandon Yingling hit his two extra point attempts but missed from 40 yards out twice. Also, in the scrimmage a snap was mishandled on an extra point attempt.
-Dustin Grutza threw two TD passes, but also made a really bad throw coming out from his own endzone. Jason Whitehead intercepted the pass and returned it for a defensive TD. In one of Dustin's touchdown throws, he avoided a rush and hit Antwuan Giddens for about a 40 yard score. Dustin later connected with Marcus Barnett on a nice throw for 60+ yards.
-Here are the players I had making tackles for loss (TFL): Revels, Craig,
-A lot of the same players had sacks: Revels, Cornett,
-I had Mauk being sacked three times; Carey getting dumped twice and Pike being sacked once. I forgot to record who got sacked on the others.
-Mauk had a TD throw to Goodman.
-Carey had a TD throw to Wess called back, but Wess did a nice job cutting back to break away for the score of about 45 yards.
-In one of the better battles in camp, Andre Revels started at MLB. Ryan Manalac has recently returned to the practice field and said he is again 100%.
-Snaps were once again a periodic problem.
-The hit of the day occurred down field when Bradley Glatthaar and Aaron Webster collided.
-Craig Carey had a nice scramble for 20 yards.
-Hoke and Byrd also put good pressure on Mauk once causing him to throw the ball away.
-Ben Guidugli had a late TD reception when the 3's were in.
I really thought the defense played well except for a couple of big plays, but it looked like the offense was given the win. I can never understand how they score these types of scrimmages.
I'll have a story on Adam Hoppel in the next day or two.
