    Many freshmen lit up the field on both lines Saturday night at the first fall football scrimmage at Bulldog Stadium. Combining veteran talent in quarterback Ryan Colburn and running back Robbie Rouse along with fresh new faces, fans got a firsthand look at the team in action.

    The biggest crowd roar came with the first touchdown of the scrimmage by freshman Victor Dean, who caught a 10-yard touchdown pass from backup sophomore quarterback Kelly O'Brien. Dean, a wide receiver from San Diego, shined in one of his first true collegiate scrimmages and plays at Bulldog Stadium.

    The defensive saw an impressive performance from true freshman Derron Smith this evening, who caught an interception and continues to show strength as a defensive back. The defensive, which has recently lost a key defensive player in junior Zak Hill due to a knee injury, will look to the 5'11" rookie from Banning, Calif., to add strength to the secondary.

    Perhaps one of the most standout performances of the night came from two freshmen, wide receiver Jalen Saunders and backup quarterback Greg Watson, who connected on a 65-yard pass to Saunders for a touchdown.

    To wrap up the scrimmage, freshman receiver Josh Harper caught a 25-yard pass for a touchdown.

    With all of these freshmen making such big plays in the first scrimmage of the year, that bodes well for the Dogs for this season and years to come.
