PISCATAWAY — Score one for the Rutgers football starters.
After spotting the opposing side 17 points to start the game, the Scarlet squad filled with first-team players outscored a reserves-filled White team, 33-3, to emerge victorious Saturday night in the spring scrimmage.
“There were some guys that shined in the stadium, with fans and lights on, and some that didn’t,” Rutgers coach Chris Ash said, offering a detailed assessment afterward. “Talking about the offense in general I thought Janarion Grant did a nice job tonight, caught a lot of bubble screens, made some guys miss in the open field. I thought Carlton (Agudosi’s) deep ball between he and Hayden (Rettig) was a nice play.
“Ball security is an issue. We put the ball on the ground too many times, especially with the wide receiver position. We can’t do that to the football team. I thought defensively overall our 1s played a pretty clean football game. We ran to the ball well. I thought we tackled well for the most part. And I’m excited to watch the film on them, and continue to see the progress that they’ve been making throughout the spring.”
