Football Team Wraps Up Spring Schedule with Controlled Scrimmage
April 11, 2015
Dillon Buechel connected with Chris King for an 80-yard touchdown pass on the first play of a 30-minute controlled scrimmage to highlight Duquesne's spring football practice finale Saturday evening at Rooney Field.
The Dukes took the field for typical warm-ups at 4:00, then proceeded to go through a first half of 1 on 1's, red zone drills, 7 on 7's and two minute drills.
After a halftime that paid tribute to the departing seniors and a balloon release in memory of former manager Ryan Fleming and former player Chris Johnson, the Dukes got at it in a 30-minute running clock controlled scrimmage.
Buechel and Ryan Egolf shared the helm on the next four possessions with Egolf completing four of seven passes for 42 yards and a number of running backs collecting yardage on the ground.
Sherman Harris led in receptions with three for 26 yards.
The only other scoring play of the game was a 31-yard field goal by Markus Colin on the fifth of six offensive drives of the scrimmage.
The Dukes open the season on Saturday, Sept. 5 as they host Kentucky Christian at Rooney Field.
