Spring game showcases new A&M-Commerce football squad

A sunshine-splashed Memorial Stadium provided ideal weather for the end of spring practice for the A&M-Commerce football team. With the team divided into two squads – blue (offense) and white (defense) – the Lions wrapped up their spring practice with a 58-play intra-squad scrimmage.

An aggressive defense forced five turnovers and allowed just one touchdown.
A&M-Commerce utilized three quarterbacks - Adam Farkes, Brandon Colquitt and Cal Farley – throughout the scrimmage. The quarterbacks found 10 different receivers during the afternoon, as the offense and the ground game saw carries split among three runners.

One of the ball carriers was Marcus Graham, who scored the lone touchdown on the afternoon. Among those causing havoc on the defensive side of the ball were junior Tramaine Williams and freshman Daniel Jacobs, who were both redshirted during the 2009 season. Williams nearly scored a defensive touchdown early in the scrimmage, picking up a fumble and returning it to the three-yard line. Jacobs was involved in multiple stops throughout the scrimmage.

A&M-Commerce, which won the last five games of the 2009 season on the way to the Lone Star Conference North title, opens the season at home on Sept. 4 against Upper Iowa at 6 p.m. Five of the Lions' 11 scheduled games will take place in Commerce. The Lions will play in the Harvey Martin Classic at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas on Sept. 11 against Angelo State.
