Football Holds First Scrimmage
Aug. 14, 2010
The Boston College football team held its first intrasquad scrimmage of the preseason on August 14 at Alumni Stadium.
The first-team defense dominated the offense in the first two series of the scrimmage, allowing just seven yards on six plays before sophomore QB Dave Shinskie found senior WR Ifeanyi Momah for a first down. Shinskie finished the day 9-for-14 for 81 yards and a touchdown.
His touchdown throw capped a drive that started on the 50-yard line. Shinskie rolled out to his left and threw on the run to the back of the end zone where sophomore WR Clyde Lee jumped and kept his feet in bounds for the score.
True freshman RB Andre Williams did the bulk of the work in the backfield, rushing seven times for 59 yards and a 19-yard touchdown run. Williams ran strong, delivered hits and broke off a game-high 29-yard run down the left sideline.
Sophomore QB Mike Marscovetra was efficient, going 7-for-9 for 52 yards. True freshmen Chase Rettig, Josh Bordner and Shane Cranmore all saw time as well. Rettig was 2-for-5 for 14 yards, Bordner completed four of six passes for 38 yards and Cranmore completed his only attempt for six yards. None of the quarterbacks threw an interception in the scrimmage.
True freshman LB Kevin Pierre-Louis led the defense with five tackles. Redshirt freshman DT Dillon Quinn was a dominating presence when on the field, recording four tackles and three sacks. Senior DE Alex Albright and junior CB Isaac Johnson both recorded four tackles. Albright added a sack and Johnson had a pass break up.
The defense was in on the quarterback a lot, registering eight sacks on the day.
The kickers went a combined 3-for-5 on their attempts and showed plenty of leg strength. Redshirt freshman Nate Freese went 2-for-3, making from 24 and 44 but missing a 46-yarder off the left upright. Junior Ryan Quigley made from 33 and missed from 34.
