The Cardinal football team conducted their first full-contact 150 minute scrimmage on Saturday afternoon. Although a number of players are out with injuries, there were a number of positive things to take away from the scrimmage.
Senior quarterback Will Stein looked very poised and threw two touchdown passes. Josh Chichester, who looks to have moved to full-time tight end had two touchdown receptions and had near 100 years receiving on the day.
Shenard Holton and Marcus Smith each had interceptions, while Randy Salmon and Dexter Heyman played very active and physical on defense.
It’s great to see this team competing very hard with each other right now. Coach Strong has said since day one that every position on the field is up for grabs.
“It’s hard to really see what we have going on out there because we have so many guys injured,” coach Charlie Strong said. “We have a lot of guys playing who haven’t played much, but it’s good that we are starting to build some depth. I was pleased with the effort and I thought there was a lot of good hitting.
