Second Scrimmage of Preseason Camp Focused on Situational Plays
STONY BROOK, N.Y. -- With just two weeks remaining until the Stony Brook football team takes the field for real in Colorado Springs against Air Force, head coach Chuck Priore had his squad conduct its second scrimmage of preseason camp on Saturday morning in Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium. The Seawolves' intrasquad scrimmage went roughly 70 plays, including several red zone plays, some two-minute drill drives and some goal line situations. "Our personality and the game of football is a physical game and I thought there was physicality across the board on both sides of the ball," Priore said about the performance on Saturday. "We had some really good plays and probably some average plays when I get a chance to watch the film." Senior QB Joe Carbone (Wethersfield, Conn.) handled the majority of the snaps on Saturday and tallied 147 yards in the air passing with a pair of touchdown passes. He also scored one rushing touchdown in a goal line situation. Junior WR Kyle Vadis (Closter, N.J.) pulled down four receptions for 32 yards, while seniors Donavin Washington (Glendora, Calif.) and Julius Wingate (Englewood, N.J.) caught touchdowns. Defensively, junior DB Gavin Heslop (Yonkers, N.Y.) collected three total tackles and broke up two pass plays. Stony Brook will have one more week of preseason camp that will include the third and final scrimmage on Friday, Aug. 24 at 10 a.m. in LaValle Stadium. The Seawolves open the season at FBS opponent Air Force in Colorado Springs on Sept. 1 before hosting Bryant in LaValle Stadium for a 6 p.m. kickoff on Sept. 8.
