ULM Spring Scrimmage March 24, 2007

Another week gone by and more players have taken their game to the next level for the Warhawks. RB Frank Goodin stepped up big and the freight train Gary Frazier continues to run over defenders.

With only one week left in spring practice the ULM football players know that now is the time to win playing time for the upcoming season. No one has shown more effort than Junior RB Gary Frazier (below).

There is big difference in the ULM one offense vs the two offense and it showed today. Kinsmon Lancaster wasn't exactly perfect, but he showed maturity and didn't make any big mistakes. Not turning the ball over all day the #1 offense had a couple of nice scores.

Darrell McNeil couldn't haul in this pass from Lancaster

Big play WR's LaGregory Sapp, and Zeek Zacharie each had scoring receptions. Sapp caught a pass over the middle and out ran the defensive backs for the 25 yard touchdown. Zeek used his big frame to shield the defenders away and Lancaster threw a perfect pass for the 11 yard score.

Calvin Dawson again sat out the scrimmage to stay healthy for next week's spring game. His potential backup to be Frank Goodin didn't hurt his chances with a couple of nice runs. On the say Goodin rushed for 57 yards on 6 carries and a 23 yard touchdown run. His competition Tay Ogletree didn't fair so well with 6 carries for 7 yards but did score a touchdown in goaline situational drills. Bruising tailback/fullback Gary Frazier has emerged as a solid short yardage back for ULM. With is low running style and wide frame, defenders can't wrap him up and one tackler can't bring him down. He reminds me of another power runner who broke a lot of tackles, Craig "Ironhead" Heyward.

As mentioned before the Warhawk second team offense didn't have a good day, in particular QB Trey Revell. Trey completed 3/11 passes for 39 yards, was picked off 3 times, and had a fumble that was recovered by converted DL Patrick Sturgeon. Revell did do a good job of scrambling when he had to rushing for 31 yards on 4 carries.

Starting QB Kinsmon Lancaster completed 9/15 passes for 99 yards, 2 touchdowns, and no interceptions. Lancaster also ran the ball well picking up 38 yards on 4 scrambles. Josh Boudreaux continues to have a good spring with 2 catches for 22 yards. The Warhawks ran a little razzle dazzle play when slot WR Darrell McNeal took a handoff, rolled out, and threw a 38 yard pass to LaGregory Sapp who made a leaping catch.

Despite the losses of Kevin Payne and Chaz Williams, the Warhawk defense continues to look solid. Playmaker Quintez Secka blocked a fg for the second straight week and in a game time situation, would have scored for the second straight week. Josh Thompson had a solid day with 3 tackles and several huge hits that jarred potential balls loose.

Defensive lineman Kendall Mouton, and Travis Eickman each recorded sacks on starter Kinsmon Lancaster. With Eickman on one end and Aaron Morgan(1 fumble recovery) on the other, the Warhawks should have a pretty nice pass rush for opposing teams to deal with. Sophomores Cardia Jackson, Preston Fuller, James Truxillo, and Roland Ricca each recorded interceptions for the defense.

A big concern for ULM is finding a long snapper to replace graduating Cody Bauman. Several of the snaps either rolled or were high for placeholders Marty Humphrey and Chance Payne to handle. For the second straight week ULM kickers did not have a good day. Cole Wilson hit from 42 yards but missed from 40, and 37(blocked). His competition Ragan Walters missed both of his attempts from 37(short), and 42(blocked).

The Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks will begin their final week of spring practice on Monday and will finish next Saturday with the Maroon and Gold Spring Game. Stay tuned to WarhawkNation for more news on your ULM Warhawk football team.
