Kent State Flashes

Football has second scrimmage

By admin Published: April 18, 2009

The Kent State football team held their second scrimmage this afternoon at Dix Stadium in picture perfect weather.  Saturday's scrimmage went much more smooth than last week.  Head coach Doug Martin said, "It was much better than the first scrimmage.  We were hoping to see dramatic progress and we did."  Last week the Golden Flashes committed many penalties but only three today.  The wide receiver play was also much improved.  Sam Kirkland, who was converted from a defensive back to a wide receiver last year, had five catches for 86 yards including a 45 yard touchdown reception from Giorgio Morgan.  Morgan was 6-12 for 70 yards and a TD.  Anthony Magazu was 9-15 for 93 yards.  The offensive line continued to struggle a little bit while giving up five sacks and had issues with pass protection.  The running backs combined for 16 carries for 41 yards.  On defense Cobrani Mixon, Dan Hartman and Zach Williams all posted five tackles.  Martin said, "I think Danny Sadler is playing really well and Josh Pleasant, he had a big interception right by the goal line.  That was a great play.  Cobrani Mixon and Dorian Wood are playing really well inside."  Spring practice will conclude Friday, April 24 with the Blue & Gold scrimmage.  That will begin at 6P.M. and is free and open to the public.
