SFA Offense Shows Penchant for Big Plays
Aug. 17, 2005
NACOGDOCHES - The Aug. 17th SFA Football camp update shows another step forward by the SFA offense, and a tenacious defense that continues to fly after the ball and apply some bone-jarring hits. The Lumberjack offense recorded four plays of at least 20 yards, including a 60-yard touchdown scamper by sophomore Louie Runnels. The 60-yard run was the only time on Thursday that the defense surrendered the goal line.
The `Jacks also got big runs from junior fullback Michael Motte and freshman tailback Damian Perkins. Motte took a pitch down the right side of the field for 50 yards to the 15-yard line. The defense then stiffened not allowing the offense to score. After moving the ball back to the 35-yard line, Perkins then step on the field and followed with a tough run inside, after breaking a tackle to pick up 21 yards.
It wasn't just the Lumberjacks' rushing game that was picking up yards in bunches. Sophomore wide out Chance Dennis made a couple of grabs, with the longest being for 20 yards. Dennis did a good job of fighting for extra yards after the catch.
The `Jacks secondary dished out some punishing blows including two by transfer Stephon Rhea. One of Rhea's hits prevented Motte from getting into the end zone after his long run.
Notes: The Lumberjacks return to practice at 9 a.m., Thursday at Homer Bryce Stadium. Practices are free and open to the public.
The annual `Meet the Jacks' will be Tuesday Aug. 23, in the Grand Ballroom of the University Center. Tickets to the event are $10 and can be purchased from any Fredonia Rotary or by contacting Gary Russell at 560-4681.
