On the Gridiron
  • An injury to the snapping hand of junior center Dallas Hendrikson ended the second scrimmage of spring camp early. With Hendrikson unable to snap and Betim Bujari and Matt McBride already injured, coach Kyle Flood opted to end things earlier than usual.

  • The offense struggled during the two-hour scrimmage, going the entire day without a passing touchdown. Jawan Jamison scored the lone first-team touchdown and walk-on C.J. Still scored twice with the third team.

  • Quarterbacks Gary Nova and Chas Dodd were a combined 10-for-28 for 102 yards in the scrimmage. Nova threw one interception to none for Dodd, who completed just 25 percent of his passes.

  • Defensively, junior cornerback Logan Ryan stood out with two sacks and strong coverage against the first-team offense. Redshirt freshman Quentin Gause led all defenders with eight tackles and redshirt freshman Max Issaka earned a start at defensive end.

  • On the injury front, walk-on Paul James and sophomore linebacker Kevin Snyder left early with leg injuries, but Flood does not expect either to be serious.

  • After the first scrimmage, Flood made multiple position changes. Robert Joseph moved from fullback to linebacker, David Milewski moved from linebacker to defensive end and Ben Martin moved from running back to cornerback.
