DSU Hornet defense takes advantage in scrimmage

DOVER, Delaware -- Delaware State’s defense took advantage of a short-handed offense to gain the upper hand in the Hornets’ Red-White football scrimmage at Alumni Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The situational offense vs. defense session marked the end of DSU’s 15-session spring camp.

On the first series of plays in the scrimmage, linebacker Malik Harris scooped up a fumble on a mishandled snap by the offense and scampered 25 yards to the end zone to set the tone for the defense.

The defense also recorded two interceptions, including one on a leaping one-handed grab by outside linebacker Kameron Rogers.

The Hornet offense scrimmaged without projected starters Mike Waters (RB) receivers Mason Rutherford and Fatu Sua-Godinet, along with tackle Joshua Fala.

Despite the missing players and lack of depth along the front line, the offense had some success in the scrimmage, particularly the connection between quarterback Keenan Black and tight end Isaiah Williams.
