Wildcats scrimmage, prepare for Purple and White Game

The Weber State University football team continued to prepare for the upcoming season on Saturday when it held its final scrimmage before the Purple and White Game.

“We limited our reps a little bit because of some of our injuries, but I thought we were pretty effective and efficient today,” said WSU head coach Jody Sears. “We have a lot of our younger players that are getting more reps, and I thought both sides showed good things today. It’s good to see our leadership coming into place.”

During Saturday morning’s scrimmage at Stewart Stadium, the offense and defensive units both had time to work on their skills during the 45-play scrimmage as the Wildcats approach their final week of spring practice.

The Wildcats will look to a new quarterback next year as Mike Hoke graduates. During Saturday’s scrimmage, quarterback Jordan Adamczyk threw for 65 yards and newcomer Alfonso Medina threw for 40 yards. He also had a 15-yard touchdown pass to Braden Corpus. Ben Maraz and Jadrian Clark also took snaps as quarterback for the Wildcats.

Senior running back Josh Booker had nine carries for 23 yards, including a one-yard touchdown run. Tony Schmitz also had four carries for the Wildcats.

On the defensive side of the ball, several players turned in good performances in the scrimmage. Devonte Johnson returned an interception for a touchdown and Daniel Henry recorded a touchdown. Jalen Ames, Chris Wheeler and Siamani Harris all had tackles for loss for WSU.

Shaun McClain kicked a few field goals as well during the scrimmage.

Several Wildcats missed Saturday’s scrimmage due to injury.

The Wildcats will conclude the spring season with the annual Purple and White Game on April 13 at 6 p.m. at Stewart Stadium.
