Georgetown Spring Football at Multi-Sport Field Vol. 1 (LIVE BLOG)

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks
Good morning Georgetown football fans!

First of all, the reason why this is headlined as Vol. 1 is to signal that this is the first of Georgetown's three spring football scrimmages. They will also scrimmage next Saturday (April 9) at 11 a.m. and then the grand finale the Blue & Gray game on April 16 at 3 p.m.

In attendance for today's scrimmage, the program's all-time leading tackler Nick Parrish, who has been spending time preparing for life after Georgetown. Parrish has been training hard and attending workouts with NFL, CFL and UFL teams who have looked at him as a linebacker or safety at the next level. He is also taking seven classes here on the Hilltop.

Joining Nick are several Georgetown football seniors, including Shane Isdaner, who you may remember just wrapped up his fourth consecutive season on the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll. OL Rob Bates, who started along the offensive line for each of the past three seasons and who the Hoyas will be tasked with replacing. LB Paul Sant'Ambrogio, whose three interceptions placed him among the Patriot League leaders last season. RB Gyasi Parrish, who lined up in the Hoyas backfield at times as a fullback and was also a strong part of the Hoyas special teams units throughout his career.

More about the scrimmage after the jump...




Today, the Hoyas got started a bit early. 10:10 a.m. to be exact, opposed to the scheduled 11 a.m. start, so they could beat the thunderstorms that are supposed to hit the D.C. metro area early this afternoon. While we're hoping for a repeat of last weekend's lacrosse game at Duke, where it looked threatening, but didn't do anything of note.

At the moment, Georgetown is in the competition phase of the scrimmage.

Scott Darby led an earlier touchdown drive from what might be the 20 yard line, but right now is just inside the top of the white restraining box.

Robert McCabe did a nice job of stepping in front of a pass and picking it off on the following drive.

Darby led another scoring drive finding Zack Wilke, who saw most of his action as a punt and kick returner in the fall. Wilke ran his route and ended up finding a hole in the middle of the end zone where Darby placed the ball nicely. Brett Weiss, fresh off playing in Georgetown lacrosse's 9-8 win over Navy last night, made the extra point.

Dustin Wharton just picked off a pass and ran it back around 25 yards. Wharton received a ton of praise from the coaching staff for his workouts during the winter. So far, so good for the soon to be sophomore.

Nick Campanella has been getting a lot of work in the backfield. He is a different type of runner than what Georgetown has used in the past few years. Chance Logan, who is sitting in the pressbox today mentioned the name Owen Schmitt as a comparison.

The team just finished up a few moments ago and after talking to Coach Kelly he mentioned first that "Georgetown won". He also noted that he was pleased with how everyone looked, but was heading in to look at film of what just took place to get a better look.
