Players of the Game

Sure, it's only a scrimmage, but it's all we have until September. So, we select our players of the game for Saturday's Gold-Blue contest.

Defensively, Jermaine Thaxton and Jahmile Addae stood out for the Blue squad which dominated the early part of the scrimmage. Thaxton was in on nine tackles and recorded a pair of big hits.

Addae, who has show steady improvement at free safety, covered the field well and was part of an effective tandem with Lawrence Audena.

On offense, Quincy Wilson was our pick for player of the game, although it was a tough selection over Rasheed Marshall. Wilson ran hard and ran with authority behind a patchwork second team offensive line, breaking several tackles and moving the pile forward on more than one occasion.
