WASHINGTON - WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University football team will hold its second spring scrimmage of 2011, beginning at 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 9 on Multi-Sport Field. The scrimmage is open to the public. For the Hoyas it will be the final scrimmage before the team's annual banquet and Blue & Gray Game on Saturday, April 16 at 3 p.m.
Saturday's scrimmage will consist of four parts, as the team will begin with three sets of punt pro.
For ten plays the first team offense will work from its own 30 yard line against the first team defense. The second team offense will start from the same spot against the second team defense for ten plays.
The coaching staff will then move the ball to the 50 yard line as the first team offense and defense square off for another ten plays, before giving way to the second team offense and defense.
Finally, the scrimmage will end with Compete Zone, with the offense starting in the red zone for five series' against the defense. The offense can earn six points for touchdowns and one point for kicked extra points, two points for an extra point run or pass and three points for a field goal. The defense can earn one point for a blocked extra point, seven points for a stop on fourth down, a blocked field goal or forced turnovers.
In last week's scrimmage, junior Scott Darby led two touchdown drives, throwing one touchdown pass to freshman Zack Wilke. On defense, Robert McCabe, Dustin Wharton and Michael Cimilluca had interceptions for the Hoyas.
Times for Saturday's scrimmage are subject to change. Georgetown will have play its annual Blue & Gray Scrimmage on Saturday, April 16 at 3 p.m. following the team's banquet where they will honor the 14 graduating seniors and award the 2011 Joe Eacobacci Memorial No. 35 Jersey.
