Kats To Scrimmage Saturday

By  | 

The rosters for both the Orange and White squads have been set and the Bearkats are ready to conclude their 2007 spring drills with the annual spring football game Saturday at Bowers Staduim at 10 a.m.

"We've been pleased with the progress we've made during spring ball," SHSU head coach Todd Whitten said. "We're definitely not a finished product yet, but there have been plenty of bright spots."

Becoming more explosive on offense and putting more pressure on the
quarterback defensively were two key goals coming into the start of spring training.

Transfer quarterback Rhett Bomar and returning starter Brett Hicks have worked well with an improving receiver corps highlighted by Baylor transfer Trey Payne and returning lettermen Catron Houston, Justin Wells, and Darnell Jones.

Running backs Chris Poullard, TyMagic Robinson, and Femi Ogundare have shown promise as well.

Defensively, Texas transfer Chris Brown has been a plus along with continued improvement by the Bearkat secondary.

The two teams have been divided evenly to provide an exciting game. The jobs of head coach for both the Orange and the White will be up for grabs at the annual Sam Houston State Football Auction and Dinner Friday night at the Walker County Fair building.
