Two Weeks to Go and Two Scrimmages Down
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – With 14 days left until kickoff for the Northern Arizona football team, the Lumberjacks held their second scrimmage of camp at the Walkup Skydome.
This week's scrimmage was a little shorter than last week, but nonetheless there was plenty of action to be seen.
"This week we went a little shorter and took more precaution," said head coach Jerome Souers. "We worked on our red zone, blitz situations, and our coming out. I saw some positives, but I also saw some things that we need to work on which is where we ought to be at this point in camp."
On offense, junior quarterback Kyren Poe connected with both Ify Umodu and Emmanuel Butler in the endzone for a pair of touchdowns. Senior Chase Cartwright also recorded a touchdown pass, as he found freshman Bryant O'Georgia for the score.
For the second straight week the defense came away with an interception, and this time it was senior Randy Hale who ran it back 25 yards.
