After yesterday's second scrimmage for the Vols Phillip Fulmer seemed pleased with the production of the Vols. The coaches stressed the running game but it was a good day for Ainge as well. “There were some exciting things that happened for the offense,” Fulmer said. “Those young running backs certainly looked good. I thought Arian and Montario ran with authority.
True freshmen, Lennon Creer and Daryl Vereen were running well and Vereen caught some eyes with a 17 yard touchdown run. Passing wise Erik Ainge threw 14-of-25 with 2 TDs and an interception. Crompton added a 10-of-15 and 77 yard night.
Defensively, Eric Berry, freshman, added another interception which is his second in as many scrimmages. Not to mention his five tackles. Also racking up on tackles was Nevin McKenzie and DeAngelo Willingham who both had 7.
On injury report another freshman, Ben Martin fell to a knee injury and had to leave for X-Rays. Here's what Fulmer had to say about it “We’re obviously real concerned about Ben. He’s a heck of a young prospect and I would hate to see him out for any length of time.”
