South Carolina State Bulldogs Conduct Second Scrimmage
ORANGEBURG, South Carolina -- SC State held its second preseason scrimmage Saturday (Aug.20) morning and followed the workout with the annual "Meet the Players Day/Fan Fest," hosted by The STATE Club, the Bulldog booster organization.
The Bulldogs football players along with other sports and coaches were introuduced to SC State supporters and fans.
In the scrimmage, which lasted approximately two hours, the Bulldog coaching staff ran about 82-plays on offense to allow several quarterbacks a chance to lead their units. Several injured Bulldogs didn't participate or saw limited action in today's scrimmage.
Bulldog head coach Buddy Pough, who is entering his 15th season at the helm of the football program, said he saw, in Saturday's scrimmage, some improvements from the first scrimmage but still thinks he team has a long way to go in some areas.
In commenting on the play of the Bulldog offense, Pough said that he was impressed with the way the offense moved the ball down the feel and was able to put the team in scoring position.
The Bulldogs will now turn its focus to preparing for its season-opener against Central Florida on Saturday. Sept. 3 in Orlando, Fla. Kickoff is 7 p.m.
