Both Catawba and Livingstone will hold their annual spring football games on Saturday.

“We are certainly progressing this spring,” said head coach Curtis Walker.  “I was pleased with several key players contributing at a high level.  I look forward to continued growth over our last week of spring practice.”

In a scrimmage last Saturday, quarterback Reid Carlton threw four touchdown passes with two going to Gavin Rose.  Sam Mobley was the top target, leading the receivers in catches.  Also on offense, Kenyatta Green was the leading rusher and Jourdan Osinskie made a huge third-down reception.

On defense, Trey Evans led the way in total tackles.  Evans, Kyle Kitchens and Jordan Hemingway had sacks.  Cris Page made two interceptions.
