TIGERVILLE, SC- Soon Saturday afternoon will be the accepted time for college football. Saturday's scrimmage was a nice preview of what is to come for the 2006 NGU Crusader Football team.
The first drive of the scrimmage saw a stifling defense striking several resounding hits on the Crusader offense. The offense then lined up on their own 25 yard line for the first play of the second drive. In an impressive flash of speed, sophomore running back Rashad Cummings took the handoff off left guard for a 75 yard touchdown, continuing where he left off an impressive true-freshman campaign. Several plays later, Quarterback Greg Woerner threw a long touchdown pass to sophomore wideout Travis NeeSmith. The defense stood up time after time, forcing a fumble on a third down play and falling on the loose ball to end the offensive drive.
Overall, the Crusader defense was very impressive, playing aggressive and smart at times, while the Crusader offense was able to get by them with more than a few big plays. Despite the heat, the estimated 150 people in attendance left pleased thanks to the lively Crusader scimmage.
