Youth Reins at Quarterback in Friday Scimmage
April 3, 2010
LUBBOCK, Texas - Texas Tech Head Coach Tommy Tuberville called Friday's closed scrimmage "productive," especially for the backup quarterbacks. With returning veterans Taylor Potts and Steven Sheffield sidelined for the remainder of the spring with injuries, sophomore Seth Doege and redshirt freshman Jacob Karam took the snaps during the 70-play scrimmage.
"I'm really proud of the young quarterbacks," Tuberville said. "They came out and threw the ball well, threw some touchdown passes. We were able to get them some work that otherwise they may not have seen. They split the reps evenly with Doege running with the ones and Karam with the twos. We'll switch them up for Monday's practice."
Friday's workout was the seventh of the spring season as the players will take a well-deserved break and enjoy Easter weekend with their families. Tuberville acknowledged the players' focus at the midway point.
"It was a real good day. They're attention was good, even though they know they are getting a couple of days off. I thought the first seven days were good."
The Red Raiders will resume workouts Monday at 3 p.m. at Jones AT&T Stadium. That practice is closed.
