Recap from Saturdays San Diego State Scrimmage at Fan Fest as the first team defeated the second team 20-8...
SAN DIEGO –
San Diego State
football held a scrimmage on Saturday afternoon during Fan Fest at Cathedral Catholic High School. The inter-squad battle was between the first and second teams resulting in a 20-8 victory for the starters.
While there was a winner and a loser the scrimmage had more to do about how the offense, defense and special teams played rather than the final score.
finished with 17-for-33 for 218 yards with a touchdown and an interception.
"It went well,” Katz said. “The offense played well. There were definitely some plays on the field that we left out there, but overall it was a smooth day. We have two weeks until Washington, we have to get better."
A big chunk of those 218 yards came from a 72-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver
“Those are quarterback's dreams, when you can throw a little bubble pass and watch a guy run for 80 (yards),” Katz said. “That's great for me, great for this offense. All these guys, I have to get the ball in their hands and they have to make some plays."
The pair almost connected on another deep pass but it slipped through the fingers of Lockett.
"It grazed the finger tips, but that's just another thing that we have to dial up on,” Lockett said. “When we got to the sideline, I told Ryan, `That's the perfect ball right there. No more, no less. I'm going to go get that in a real game. That's on me.’”
USC transfer wide receiver
played with both the first and second team resulting in four catches for 50 yards including a first quarter 10-yard touchdown.
"We did well, the offense did a lot better than how we were performing in scrimmages this week,” Butler said. “Our execution was okay. So we did pretty good today."
“He [Butler] a good receiver,” Katz said. “He brings a lot of experience. This is his fifth year after being in another system, but he's a good route runner, he's a fast guy and has long strides. We can get him a lot of balls in this offense."
In the second quarter it was De’Saan Hardwick who was the feature back with the first team. The redshirt freshmen had a scoring drive of three rushes for 47 yards including a 39-yard run and a goal line score.
“I did pretty well,” Hardwick said. “I have to give all my props to the offensive line and the receivers out there blocking the outside for those big runs to occur."
The last score of the game came from Chase Price with the first from two yards out in the third quarter. He tallied 26 yards on seven carries.
On the defensive side of the ball it was sophomore middle linebacker
who stood out with 5 tackles including 3 sacks and a 45-yard interception.
The blitzing defense gave fits to the offensive line all day resulting in 12 sacks.
“I thought the offensive line struggled at times,” SDSU head coach Rocky Long said. “As long as we played vanilla on defense, they did a nice job. As soon as we added some blitzes, I don't think they held up as good as they should or need to by the first game."
Warrior Eric Pinkins lead all players with 9 tackles.
As stated before the game had nothing to do with the score but ultimately what head coach Rocky Long thinks about the overall play of the team.
“It was inconsistent,” Long said. “There were some good things, especially in the second half on defense. In the first half, it looked like the offense moved the ball pretty well. We were so inconsistent, one minute we looked good and the next minute we looked terrible. There were too many mistakes on offense, too many penalties. The offense looked okay in the first half and the defense looked much better than the offense in the second half."
14 days until Washington.
