Offense Impressive As Lions Hold First Scrimmage
HAMMOND – Brian Babin tossed a pair of touchdowns while redshirt freshman Zeke Jones rushed for a score as Southeastern Louisiana held its first scrimmage of spring drills Saturday at Strawberry Stadium.
Babin tossed scoring passes to Simmie Yarborough and Kory Theodore while Jones keyed the rushing attack that is looking to replace three-time All-Southland Conference back Jay Lucas.
“I was really pleased with our offensive performance today,” head coach Mike Lucas said. “Brian (Babin) threw the ball great today and we ran the ball better than we expected.
“Zeke (Jones) and Johnny Owen did a fantastic job in running the football and I was very pleased with our offensive line … they were much more physical than at any point since we’ve been here.”
Southeastern, which will hold its second scrimmage on March 21 before its annual Spring Game on March 28, returns to practice on Monday in an 8 p.m. workout in Strawberry Stadium.
