MOCK GAME HIGHLIGHTS
– Markus White was laid out on a great block by running back Terrance Cobb early in the scrimmage
– Levi Steinhauer now playing at fullback picked up his first catch playing on that side of the ball
– The first score of the game was a 26-yard pitch and catch from Darian Durant to Naaman Roosevelt. That drive set up by a Tre’ Von Armstead fumble recovery.
– Former Stanford Cardinal receiver now turned defensive back, Rollins Stallworth had an interception that ended up on a Tyler Crapigna field goal, his third of the game.
– The defensive backfield continued to shine when Samuel Eguavoen made a leaping grab for an interception.
– Brett Smith had a great drive snuffed out by a halfback option pass that was intercepted at the two-yard line.
– Smith’s first drive of the second half of the mock game saw him connect with Alec Lemon on a deep pass to the one-yard line.
