Eagles Scrimmage with Rockdale, Robinson
Lexington took on Robinson’s offense to start the scrimmage. Robinson runs the spread offense and throws the ball quite a bit. The Eagles allowed some short completions that the receivers paid the price for catching. Running plays were snuffed out, mostly in the backfield for losses. Later in the scrimmage when the Lexington defense took on Rockdale’s offense, the running game was stopped and the passing game resulted in sacks or rushed passes that were thrown before the receivers were even looking for the ball.
Offensively the Eagle offense did not score. They got close late against Robinson but were unable to punch it into the end zone. Kogan Garrett made some good runs up the middle of the field and a great pass for a 30-yard gain. Xavier Ward ran strong, mostly for short yardage.
Coach Holcomb was pleased with the scrimmage. He did not feel the Eagles got all the work in he had wanted. “The defensive line dominated the line of scrimmage and the offense is beginning to do things we expect of them. We will be okay if the offense continues to develop.”
