Defense steals spotlight in Teal & White spring game

ccufoot-31The Coastal Carolina University football program concluded the spring practice season with the teal-clad defense getting the better of the white-clad offense in the annual Spring Game on Saturday afternoon.

The game, which was played Brooks Stadium, was followed by a meet and greet session between the Chanticleers and fans in attendance.

Head coach Joe Moglia, recipient of the 2015 Eddie Robinson Award, opened the day welcoming the crowd to Brooks Stadium and explaining the day’s format.

Following 20 minutes of warm-ups and individual position drills the team came together to start the scrimmage. The first segment of action was focused on special teams with the punt, punt return, punt block, kickoff and kickoff return units all taking a rep.

The first team offense, led by All-American De’Angelo Henderson, then took the field against Jabarai Bothwell and the first team defense for a scripted seven-plays from the offense’s 30. The offense netted 16 total yards through the first six plays of the series before Richie Sampson picked off Tyler Keene on the seventh play.

Austin Bradley then led the second team offense out against the second defensive unit for seven plays. The drive netted 28 total yards with Bradley’s 16-yard completion to Miguel Valdes highlighting the series.

Henderson and the first units returned to the field with the ball placed at the 50-yard line. After an incomplete pass, Henderson rushed four straight times for 14 yards a first down. The drive would stall at the 34 and Ryan Granger’s 44-yard field goal missed wide left.

The twos then took over at the 50-yard line. The offense moved the ball inside the red zone with the help of a pass interference call. However, the defense held strong and forced a 37-yard Evan Rabon field goal, which was partially blocked.

The final segment featuring the ones started with the offense 35 yards away from paydirt. The series started with an incompletion and a Bruce Mapp five-yard reception before Dwayne Price dropped Keene for a nine-yard sack.  Two plays later the drive was extended with a defensive pass interference call, setting the offense up on 17. Osharmar Abercrombie carried for four yards then Keene hit A.J. Sattinger with nine-yard pass down to the four. ON first and goal Sederick Palmer burst through the line for an eight-yard sack, but the offense responded two plays later as Keene connected with Chris Jones in the corner of the endzone for a 12-yard score. Granger converted the PAT, giving the offense a 7-0 lead.

The twos wrapped up their final series with the offense moving from its own 35 to the 32 of the defense. The series featured 10-plus rushing yards by Kenneth Daniels and Marcus Outlow along with an 18-yard Bradley to Trey Gattison connection. But it was defensive tackles Nick Foley and Seamus Tully putting the exclamation point on the series with back-to-back sacks to end the drive.
