Wake Forest scrimmage report

The Wake Forest coaching staff did things a little different this morning and broke the team into two squads and tried to approximate the flow of an actual game. The Black team ended the 90-minute scrimmage with a 9-7 win against the White. Here's a quick recap of the Demon Deacons' final preseason scrimmage:

Offensive highlights:

  • The White team scored first on a 56-yard touchdown run by redshirt sophomore Josh Harris. Harris had 60 yards rushing on five carries and the lone touchdown of the scrimmage.

  • The Black team settled for three field goals, two by Jimmy Newman and one by freshman Chad Hedlund. Newman was good on kicks of 45 and 34 yards, respectively. Hedlund’s kick came from 31 yards out.

  • Ted Stachitas and Tanner Price alternated the quarterback duties for the White team with Stachitas drawing the majority of snaps. Stachitas completed eight of 12 passes for 52 yards. Price completed one of five attempts for seven yards.

  • Khiry Sutton led the Black team with 14 yards rushing on five carries. Brandon Pendergrass had 55 yards on six carries for the White.

Defensive highlights:

  • Cornerback Allen Ramsey II led the Black team with six tackles and recovered a fumble. Safety Joe LaBarbera had five tackles and a 69 yard return of a fumble before he was caught from behind by Stachitas.

  • Kyle Wilber led the White team with four tackles and 2.5 sacks. Nose tackle Nikita Whitlock matched that with four tackles, two sacks and 2.5 tackles for loss.

  • Freshman walk-on linebacker Britt Cherry had the lone interception of the scrimmage, picking off a Price pass with a diving, juggling catch.
