Scrimmage Insider: The big dogs come out to play

The Seminole football team completed its first scrimmage Wednesday evening and all the usual suspects came to play.

Most of the key players from the first team offense and defense made big plays and dominated their younger and more inexperienced counterparts.

Quarterback Drew Weatherford directed the first team offense to touchdowns on three of the four series versus the second team defense. The sophomore signal caller finished the day completing 11-for-13 for 127 yards and two touchdowns. If you throw in the four plays in the redzone, he finished with four touchdowns on 13-for-16 passing. In case you are wondering, in Weatherford's first scrimmage last year he completed 12-of-20 for 90 yards.

"This time last year I wasn't to calm or collected in the huddle or out on the field," Weatherford said. "This year I feel much better, that is just because of the experience I got last year and the confidence I have in my offensive line and receivers. They really make my job really easy.

"I thought I did okay, I could have done much better. I made some good plays but I made way to many mistakes. I have studied a lot and I felt that I was more prepared than what I looked like out there today."

Weatherford spread his completions around to six different receivers but Chris Davis and Greg Carr did most of the damage combining for 7 catches for 89 yards with each contributing a touchdown. Although Carr had a few more yards officially, thanks primarily to his 40-yard touchdown catch, Davis' play in the redzone really turned some heads. The elusive senior wideout caught two big passes in the redzone drill including another touchdown from Weatherford.
