Defense Leads The Way at CSU Spring Scrimmage

In the first scrimmage under new Colorado State head football coach Jim McElwain, the defense lived up to expectations as the dominant force that many expect in the upcoming season. The ‘D’ combined for 27 sacks, 30 tackles for loss, and an interception for a touchdown in yesterday’s first spring scrimmage. The only offensive scoring of the game was a 4-yard rush by freshman Tommey Morris.

Post-scrimmage comments from coach McElwain:

On the defense: “The defense came in and did a nice job with situational football. At times they, maybe, could have wrapped up a little better instead of trying to take a kill shot.”

On the scrimmage: “I think the organization of the scrimmage was good. We got all the situations in.”

“You get disappointed a little bit when one team maybe doesn’t do as good as the other. But at the end of the day we are all a team and these guys are going to stay together. We have a chance to be a pretty decent ball squad.”

“I was really kind of happy about the pace of the scrimmage. I thought the guys handled substitutions pretty decently for the first time. I’m kind of a little optimistic.”

On QB assessment: “With the wind, the protections, this and that, I thought they started out pretty good, on a decent rhythm. We missed, obviously, two touchdown throws that are just accurate issues but that is why we practice.”
