Football Practice Report: Scrimmage #3

Practice14A27

Catawba held its final preseason football scrimmage on Wednesday and got inside Shuford Stadium for the first time since the day one running tests.  The team will take a day off on Thursday and return to practice on Friday and Saturday.  Media Day will be on Sunday at 2 p.m.

The No. 1 offense was able to score on their first two possessions, including a 65-yard touchdown pass from Mike Sheehan to Gary Williams.  “We are proud of how our #1 offense was able to move the ball,” exclaimed Head Coach Curtis Walker.  “The #2 defense did a great job of holding the #2 offense, but the offense came back to score on the last two drives.”

Freshman Eamon Smart impressed those in attendance with several nice runs and wide receiver Donte Means has opened some eyes the last couple of practices.  Walked stated that veteran center Taylor Fender has been a tremendous leader on the offensive front.  “He has had a great year preparing for his senior season.  He spent the summer here lifting and conditioning.”

Chad Hollandsworth had a pair of field goals during the scrimmage, including one of 47 yards which would match his career high and had some distance to spare.  “Chad has looked his best over the past two days,” continued Walker.  “He punted and kicked as well as I have ever seen him.  I have been very pleased with his performance and think that he is back to his all-conference ability.”

The offense wasn’t the only side of the ball to come up with some nice plays.  Mark McDaniel had an interception and Jonathan Jean made a key pass break up at the line on a third down play.  “Jean seems to be back from his injury and had a nice day.”

Catawba will open the season a week from Saturday on September 6th at Davidson.  The teams have not met since 1987 after a dramatic 27-20 win by the Indians.  The Wildcats will get a game under their belt this weekend as they host the College of Faith.
