 University of Delaware Football Takes Part in First Scrimmage
of the Pre-Season

DATE: August 19, 2006

NEWARK, DE -- The University of Delaware football squad took part in its
first official scrimmage of the pre-season Saturday afternoon at
Delaware Stadium.

The Blue Hens scrimmaged for over nearly two hours before a crowd of
about 500 spectators and took part in over 100 plays from scrimmage. The
team also worked on kickoff coverage, field goals, goal-0line defense,
and the two-minute offense.

“The offense really stepped up today,” said head coach K.C. Keeler,
whose team will open the season Sept. 9 at home vs. West Chester. “Our
defense has dominated the first five or six days of practice but today
the offense was impressive. They did some very good things and we liked
what we saw. It’s a process and we learned some good things about some
kids. We have an energetic group and competed very well and we got a lot
done today.”

The starting quarterback job is still up for grabs with senior Ryan
Carty and junior Joe Flacco splitting nearly 90 snaps. Freshman Sean
Scanlon also saw about 15 plays from scrimmage.

Flacco threw touchdown passes to tight ends Mike Mailey and Robbie
Agnone, a 35-yard score to freshman wide receiver Mark Mackey, and one
to wide receiver Jon Heydt. Junior All-American running back Omar Cuff
also scored on a one-yard dive early in the session. Kicker Zach Hobby
attempted five field goals and hit one from 52 yards and two others from
27 yards. Among the top defensive performances were put in by true
freshman defensive lineman Justin Johnson.

“We have great a competition at the quarterback position,” said Keeler.
“We are very fortunate to have two very good players competing at that
position and that’s important to have that in this league. Good
competition like that makes everyone better, not just at the quarterback
position. We are still make evaluations, but it won’t be long until we
make a decision on the starter.”

Keeler was also quick to praise the play of the newcomers.

“We have a young team and we’ve been happy with the play of some of the
newcomers,” he said. “They have picked up the tempo and we feel that
several of them will be able to play right away. Justin (Johnson) is
someone who will play right away. He has good quickness and really has
some nasty in him. We need help at that position and he’ll play right
away and could compete for a starting spot.”
