Recapping Today's Scrimmige

It seems that today's scrimmage at Greentree Field was an offensive showing.  Jacory Harris and Stephen Morris were a combined 39-57 for 547 yards, accounting for 6 touchdowns and no turnovers.  Quite an improvement.  Miller and James each ran the ball a total of 6 times and combined for 99 yards.  Darion Hall was impressive carrying the ball 11 times and scoring a touchdown.  Golden said that "Hall has been one of the surprises of training camp."  Tommy Streeter had 7 catches for 147 yards and 2 touchdowns.  Not too shabby.  The scrimmage ended in a dramatic fashion resulting in Streeter catching a 50 yard hail-mary pass from Harris and being stopped at the one yard line, resulting in a white team victory.  Jake Wieclaw made a 53 yard field goal in the first half.

As far as the defense, Golden said that tackling "still needs to be improved."  Andrew Smith was highly praised.
