HUNTSVILLE — The Bulldogs offense showed off its quick strike potential Saturday in the team’s final scrimmage of the fall.
Alabama A&M will now go into “game-prep” mode in its workouts, said Head Coach James Spady.
The coach also had mixed feelings as the offensive coach and as the head coach.
“On offense, I was pleased with our quick strikes,” he said.”On defense, we have to stop the big plays.”
The big plays included a 62-yard catch-and-run pass from De’Angelo Ballard to Tevin McKenzie, a 68-yard run by Jordan Bentley and a 59-yard touchdown run by Rashad Anderson.
“We executed the plays as well as expected,” Spady said. “Our top two quarterbacks were able to do well as far as game management.”
A couple of big surprises in camp, Spady said, were a pair of freshmen – Bentley and Quantravis Kelly.
“Now, it’s time to go from preseason to game preparation in the practices, he said. Players who had a lot of reps may see their numbers drop as they move to scout team roles.
“We’re making the transition to game preparation,” he said. “The guys will take different roles … they’re charged with getting us prepared for Middle Tennessee.”
Spady said the players are eager to start the game preparation, as well.
“We’re going to go into the game with every intention of winning,” he said. “They’re ready to play somebody different.”
