UW scrimmage stats

HelmetWyoming completed its second major scrimmage of the spring Wednesday, and third scrimmage overall.
The stats from Wednesday’s scrimmage are below, and I apologize in advance for the messy tabs. Hopefully you can see what you want there.
In the meantime, I complied some of UW’s statistical leaders from its three scrimmages.
Passing
Brett Smith           35-57 (61.4 percent) 493 yards, 6 TD, 2 INT
Jason Thompson  34-57 (59.6 percent) 431 yards, 3 TD, 3 INT
Tommy Thornton   13-24 (54.1 percent) 154 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT
Colby Kirkegaard  10-15 (66.7 percent) 246 yards, 2 TD, 0 INT
Rushing
D.J. May         32 carries, 160 yards (5.0 ypc)  4 TD
Shaun Wick    26 carries, 177 yards (6.8 ypc)  3 TD
Omar Stover    27 carries, 143 yards (5.3 ypc)  0 TD
Receiving
Dominic Rufran      19 catches, 252 yards (13.3 ypc), 4 TD
Robert Herron        10 catches, 159 yards (15.9 ypc), 2 TD
Keenan Montgomer 12 catches, 175 yards (14.6 ypc), 0 TD
Nico Brown             8 catches, 134 yards (16.8 ypc), 2 TD
Eric Nzeocha          7 catches, 102 yards (14.6 ypc), 1 TD
Note: 14 different players have caught passes in scrimmages this spring.
Tackles
LB Jordan Stanton    21
LB Lucas Wacha      17
LB Mark Nzeocha     15 (also leads team with three tackles for loss)
Interceptions
Six players each with one (CB Marqueston Huff, S Darrenn White, CB Blair Burns, LB Nehemie Kankolongo, DB Cortland Fort, DL Sam Hardy). Huff and White returned interceptions for TDs in Wednesday’s scrimmage — Huff 84 yards, White 22 yards.
Quarterback sacks
DE Eddie Yarbrough leads with two. Six other players each have one: LB Devyn Harris, LB Lucas Wacha, DT Uso Olive, DE Jeff Roueche, DE/OLB Siaosi Hala’api’api, DT Troy Boyland.
Kicking
Stuart Williams      20-20 PAT; 19-20 FG, long of 41
Taylor King           10-12 PAT; 2-4 FG, long of 31
Kris Mull                 5-5 PAT; 3-3 FG, long of 28
Ethan Wood           0-0 PAT; 0-2 FG
Note: There are no punting statistics. Two of UW’s three scrimmages have been inside and not conducive for punting. And, UW needs to replace sophomore Tim Gleeson who left the team earlier this spring.

Field Goal Blocks #2 Huff, #54 Diamanti
  • Go Pokes

    Where is Trent Sewell in these stats? Is he still sick (rumored)?

    • rgagliardi

      Yes, sick or hurt. Has been most of the spring. UW won’t disclose injuries/illnesses. Wasn’t there today due to bad weather, but he has been at all the practices and doing a few things most of the spring.

      RG

      • Go Pokes

        Keep up the good work.

        • rgagliardi

          Thank you, appreciate the kind words.

          • Dallas R.

            Just wondering why we haven’t seen any highlights from the scrimmages this spring? You’d think that with Coach C giving full access to practices and scrimmages that we’d see some.

          • rgagliardi

            We are not allowed to shoot photos or video of any of the scrimmages or practices other than the first 30 minutes of each practice, per coach Christensen. During scrimmages, that is basically just warm-ups.

            RG

          • Dallas R.

            OK I understand. Even on the official wyoming team site I noticed they haven’t been showing any clips of the scrimmages, just interviews.

  • James

    It seams that #54 Diamanti has made an impact on the field for Field Goal Blocks In the DT position . If he can penatrate the OL to that extent he might be someone to utilize more on the DL

    • rgagliardi

      Diamanti is doing well this spring for a true freshman. I think he can help this fall. Like his attitude and worth ethic so far.
