College Football: Spring football games Saturday at Livingstone, Catawba

Staff report

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

At Livingstone, the action begins at Alumni Memorial Stadium at 1 p.m.

Head coach Darryl Williams said that this year, the spring game will feature a format that will include some flag-football participation of several 7-on-7 teams of former Blue Bears players.

Admission is free and the public is invited to attend.

Livingstone opens the season on Sept. 2, against Benedict, in Columbia, S.C. The game will be the 16th annual Palmetto Capital City Classic


The Catawba Blue-White spring game will kickoff at 12 noon on Saturday at Shuford Stadium.

“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.

The Indians begin next season with a Thursday night home game against St. Augustine’s on Aug. 31.
