In the Mustangs' first scrimmage last Saturday, a trio of true freshmen accounted for the pair of touchdowns recorded in the 45-play scrimmage on the artificial turf of the upper fields at the Cal Poly Sports Complex.
Chris Brown connected with Jordan Hines on a 70-yard scoring pass and the scrimmage ended with Brown's 55-yard touchdown pass to Roland Jackson.
Third-year Mustang head coach Tim Walsh and his staff utilized 10 ball carriers, four quarterbacks and 10 receivers in the scrimmage.
Junior quarterback Andre Broadous completed three of six passes for 19 yards while his backup, junior Doug Shumway, connected on five of his six attempts for 11 yards. Brown completed all of his six pass attempts for 142 yards and the two scores.
Top receiver in the scrimmage was another freshman, redshirt slotback K.J. Cusack, with five catches for 30 yards. Chris Nicholls, Cole Stanford and Deonte Williams each caught a pair of passes.
The running game netted 82 yards on 25 carries, led by fullback Akaninyene Umoh (pictured above) with 20 yards on one trip and Shumway with 19 yards on six carries. Senior slotback Mark Rodgers netted 12 yards around right end on his only carry of the scrimmage while Williams added nine yards on three trips.
The offense collected 11 first downs against a Mustang defense that recovered one fumble, recorded seven tackles for lost yardage and held the offense four times on three-and-outs. There were just two penalties in the scrimmage.
