Duck Spring Game '08
The White team crushed the Green team 36-3. There were many memorable moments. On the first set of plays for the white team, they marched 75 yards in 2 plays. The first was a 67 yard completion from Justin Roper to Ed Dixon. On the very next play Roper ran it in from 8 yards out for the TD. Ropers execution, fakes and decisions were flawless in the 1st quarter.

LeGarrette Blount, (#9 in the picture) the new JC transfer running back, was awesome. He played for the white team also. He ran over tacklers, slid to avoid defenders, changed direction and reminded me of Jonathan Stewart on more than one occasion. He had a big day for the white team.

Jaison Williams had some nice catches, never dropped a ball and scored a TD too. Again, he played for the white team. Cody Kempt and Cade Cooper looked sharp but I would give the edge to Kempt. The white defense also played to win with a couple of interceptions.

Chris Harper and Darron Thomas played for the green team, I think Thomas was the best of these two but never could lead their team to a TD.

The weather was cooperative, partly cloudy and about 7o degrees. 14,107 fans turned out for the game. It was great fun and Dave and my first Spring Game. Check out some more photos we took at Flickr.
