The Weber State football team held its first full scrimmage of spring camp Friday afternoon at Stewart Stadium.
“I really liked the way the defensive played,” said WSU head coach Jay Hill. “They had some key plays, caused some turnovers, and really made the offense work. There were several guys that really stepped up and made some big plays on defense. On the offensive side we had too many penalties and mistakes. We to eliminate the mistakes and take care of the ball. That’s their number one job on offense but they didn’t handle that today and need to get that fixed.”
On defense several Wildcats stepped up and made big plays. Spencer Unga had an interception returned for a touchdown. The ‘Cats also had an interception and forced a fumble. Deontae Florence and Dustin Martin each recorded sacks.
Sophomore quarterback Austin Chipoletti threw for 53 yards and Jadrian Clark threw for 76 yards, including a 70-yard touchdown pass to Jalen Fields at the end of the scrimmage.
Bo Bolen had eight carries for 52 yards, including a 10 yard touchdown. New Wildcat running back De’Saan Hardwick rushed for 31 yards. Shaydon Kehano had three receptions for 25 yards.
The Wildcats will have two more weeks of spring practice and will have another scrimmage next Saturday, April 12. Spring practice will conclude with the annual Spring Purple and White Game on Saturday, April 19.
