| No Comments | No TrackBacks
While the offense struggled to really find continuity throughout the 100-plus play scrimmage at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium, several offensive players did stand out, including sophomore running back Jerrell Rhodes and receiver Keiwone Malone.

Rhodes rushed for over 150 yards, and broke off several long runs while toting the ball about a dozen times. Rhodes had three runs for over 40 yards, including a 58-yarder about 30 plays into the scrimmage. Rhodes also posted a 43-yard touchdown run on a 3rd and 2 situation from the 43.

"Jerrell Rhodes has done what he has done every single day since we started practicing," said head coach Larry Porter. "What I saw today, I have seen for nine straight practices. We just have to continue to stay the course with him, and allow him to stay in that rhythm that he is in now."

Malone, who is eligible to practice with the team after transferring from Alabama right at the start of camp, had four receptions for over 100 yards receiving on the day. He showed tremendous speed as he sprinted into the end zone on a 79-yard touchdown from transfer QB Skylar Jones. He also had a 36-yard pickup on a pass thrown by Andy Summerlin. Malone's game eligibility status has not been determined at this point.
