Washington, St. Pierre Shine In Football Scrimmage
April 8, 2000
CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Running back Cedric Washington rushed 19 times for 117 yards and a touchdown Saturday at Alumni Stadium in Boston College's second intrasquad scrimmage of spring practice. Redshirt freshman Derrick Knight carried the ball 15 times for 67 yards and a touchdown in the 25-series, two-hour tune-up for next Saturday's annual spring game (1 p.m. at Alumni Stadium).
Redshirt freshman fullback J.P. Comella also had a big day, grabbing two passes for 70 yards and a touchdown to lead all receivers.
"I think our team showed improvement this week," Coach Tom O'Brien said. "It showed today that we are getting individual improvement from many people, and our goal for spring practice was individual improvement. We look forward to our final week of practice and to next Saturday's spring game."
