SPRING GAME 2015
SLOPPY DRAW FOR PURPLE & ORANGE
The Purple took an early lead when Connor Chavela ran up the gut for a 5-yard touchdown but the Orange’s Kenneth Grady picked off a pass that went off the hands of Purple running back, Markell Vilce, to even the game at 6 late in the first half. Both teams failed the point after try-the Purple elected to kick and Adrian Poot’s foot shanked it wide left and the Orange went for 2 and a fade pass to the right corner to Ethan Nelson looked good before cornerback, Darren Peng, got an arm in there to dislodge the ball.
Both teams played excellent defense with a few lapses in coverage. Fortunately, most broken coverages turned into dropped balls by the offense. Grady starred on the defensive side with 2 picks in the afternoon. Poot countered with 1 of his own-a beautifully poached seam route he snagged which required all of his 5’3″ height and every inch of his vertical. There were no fumbles lost by both teams though all 3 Purple quarterbacks botched at least 2 snaps each (Chavela, Poot, Vilce).
