After seven days of practice, Catawba held its first football scrimmage on Wednesday. Coach Curtis Walker tabbed it as a much needed scrimmage and the team was able to get in about 60 plays on a warm late afternoon.
“The scrimmage today gives us a guage on where we are in the preparation for the 2014 season,” Walker said. “We had some really well executed plays but also some plays that left me scratching my head on how we could mess them up so bad. It was good to have the officials here to help our team understand the disciplines of the game.”
Walker said QB Mike Sheehan is doing an outstanding job.
A scrimmage is scheduled Saturday morning at 11.
