Mustangs to Hold Scrimmage Saturday Afternoon in Spanos Stadium

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. -- The 2014 Cal Poly football team will hold a scrimmage Saturday afternoon in Alex G. Spanos Stadium.

About 90 players, many of them competing for starting roles as well as second-team positions, will participate in the scrimmage, expected to last about 40 minutes.

"It will all be situational plays," said sixth-year Mustang head coach Tim Walsh, "about 40 scripted plays and 12 special team plays.

"We will try to get everything dialed in as far as what we do in certain situations, offensively, defensively and on special teams," Walsh added.

Multiple battles have continued near the end of the second week of Fall Camp, particularly at both slotback positions, one wide receiver spot, two positions on the defensive front and one at Sam linebacker.

And, of course, the battle wages on at quarterback with juniors Dano Graves and Chris Brown vying for the starting nod from the coaching staff.

"There are several competitive battles that need to be finalized before we play at New Mexico State," Walsh said. "Some of them will be very critical to our success."

Fall Camp ends next weekend and, on August 25, the Mustangs begin preparations for the August 28 season opener at New Mexico State in Las Cruces, N.M.

Saturday's scrimmage begins at 2 p.m. and the general public is invited to watch free of charge.
