FOOTBALL WRAPS FIRST SCRIMMAGE


WEST LONG BRANCH, NJ – Monmouth University's football team wrapped up its first intersquad scrimmage of training camp, going 80 plays in front of fans on Saturday. "You certainly want your guys having enough playing time on the field in game type conditions so the first and second units got the bulk of the work," said Monmouth Head Coach Kevin Callahan." Overall I am really pleased with way the day went." The offense took control early scoring on a trio of big plays but the defense adjusted later on, stopping a number of short yardage runs, recording a pair of sacks and an interception.
