SUU looking good after first scrimmage
Southern Utah’s football team held its first full scrimmage of the 2010 spring session Saturday and third-year head coach Ed Lamb said he was pleased with what he saw on the field.
“We had a good scrimmage,” Lamb said. “We’re far ahead of where we were one year ago at this time, on both the offensive side of the ball and on the defensive side of the ball.”
One of the primary concerns for the Thunderbirds heading into the season is the quarterback position. The heir apparent to record-setting Cade Cooper is Brad Sorensen, a mid-year transfer who redshirted at BYU last fall after one outstanding season at San Bernardino College and serving an LDS church mission.
A decorated high school athlete as well, Sorensen has been making progress in the system and is considered the frontrunner, but Lamb said three other quarterbacks - Zack Olsen, J.J. Mayer and Randall Nygren - have performed well.
