Motley Shines in First Scrimmage

The Hokies played their first inter-squad scrimmage Saturday, and there were some major things that stuck out to me. First, Micheal Brewer did not participate due to a back issue. This allowed Brenden Motley to take first team reps, and he was quite impressive. The dual threat quarterback completed 3 of 4 passes and didn't turn the ball over. He is going to make the quarterback battle very interesting if he keeps showing this type of promise. He is easily the bigger and faster of the two, but we will have to wait and see who is the better passer and leader. 

Another positive I saw was that our young running backs Travon McMillian and D.J. Reid had very impressive days. McMillian broke a long touchdown run on the opening drive, and Reid showed great speed and elusiveness Saturday. Red-shirt freshman Terrell Edmunds, brother of running back Trey Edmunds, was superb at defensive back. He had the scrimmage's only turnover when he intercepted Andrew Ford. Look for Edmunds to get some playing time this year, especially if Donovan Riley moves to rover (safety). 

One negative is that there was far too many pre-snap penalties on the Hokies offensively. This was a major problem last year and needs to be weeded out before the season begins. All in all, it was a pleasing first scrimmage and the anticipation is growing in Blacksburg for football to start up again. Look for the Hokies to make some noise this fall.
