Bulldogs QB Situation Taking Shape
NORMAL – “If I had to say which quarterback had the edge today it was Brandon Wells,” head football coach Anthony Jones mentioned, after the Bulldogs second scrimmage of the fall preseason camp.
Unofficially Wells finished six for eight for 125 yards and two touchdowns but fumbled the ball on separate occasions.
Transfer quarterback Kyle Harmyk, who suffered two helmet dislodging hits, finished the morning get together 3-5 for 37 yards. The California native spent most of the time running as he totaled 31 yards on the ground. A hand-off to Ball State transfer Barrington Scott resulted in a fumble that defensive linemen Corey Johnson picked up.
The other California quarterback, Chris Leachman, ended the day four-for-five for 27 yards. Leachman was sacked by D-linemen Anthony Lanier once.
The final QB in the hunt for the starting role, Jaymason Lee, spent a lot of time on the field collecting over 18 plays in the 75 play scrimmage and totaled three completions on four attempts. The Honolulu native was sacked three times and had two of his passes broken up by the defense.
The Maroon & White defense posted a touchdown when David Dagrin pick up a fumble and raced it 47 yards for a score while six sacks were recorded.
It was the offense that won the day as Wells other TD came when he found Jeremy Ford for a 24 yard touchdown. Wells also showed what he can do with his legs, when in a third and seven situation, he rushed for 12-yards picking up the much needed first down.
A&M will be off on Sunday and return to the practice field on Monday, August 12th for another two-a-day session.
