West Texas A&M football hosted its annual spring game Saturday morning at Kimbrough Memorial Stadium.
One of the biggest questions entering the game would be the play at quarterback, with last year’s starter Ethan Brinkley set to compete for the starting gig again. He split first team reps with freshman Skyler Bonneau and overall, Buffaloes head coach Mike Nesbitt liked what he saw from all of his quarterbacks.
“I thought Ethan and Skyler did a good job of handling the 1’s and I was really pleased with some of the 2’s,” Nesbitt said after the scrimmage. “I thought some of those guys that went with that second group moved the ball and handled themselves pretty decently. I mean they were playing against some really good players so they did some things really well.”
As for the defense, they were ball-hawking throughout the game, benefiting from several tipped passes. It isn’t however merely a byproduct of the offense throwing the ball predominantly in the game, it’s a strength Coach Nesbitt expects to carry over to the season.
“Our guys are doing a really good job of playing with their feet and their eyes and not losing leverage.”
The Buffs will wrap up spring practices on Tuesday.
