Youth take reps in scrim­mage

The Denver Post - - SPORTS - By Mike Bro­hard

FORT COLLINS» The day was big­ger than the team on the field, a fact Colorado State foot­ball coach Mike Bobo could sense early on Satur­day in the first pre­sea­son scrim­mage.

There were a host of vet­er­ans out with in­juries, with the ones along the of­fen­sive line (Tyler Bjork­lund and Trae Mox­ley) lead­ing to some ma­jor shuf­fling and pro­tec­tion is­sues for the sec­ond unit, and a few had their work­load cut back to cre­ate more reps for the young­sters.

Fresh­man re­ceiver E.J. Scott had a strong show­ing with five catches for 87 yards, but he also had a fum­ble. The flip side to that play was his class­mate, safety Jadon Walker, caused and re­cov­ered it. He had eight stops, in­clud­ing two sacks in the scrim­mage.

Collin Hill, com­ing off knee surgery, showed he can move and ex­tend plays.

Start­ing quar­ter­back Nick Stevens looked strong (10-of-15, 224 yards and two scores), out­side of a bad read in the red zone when he was in­ter­cepted by Justin Sweet.
