As you can see from the above video—the offense has caught up to the defense a bit after the second scrimmage of the spring. Taylor Tharp bounced back from a poor showing at the first scrimmage to lead all Bronco QBs. Tharp went 9 of 11 for 122 yards and 2 passing TDs, one to Freshman RB Jeremy Avery and another to Tanyon Bissell. Bush Hamdan kept pace having another solid outing going 5 of 7. Sophomore Nick Lomax showed that he isn't giving up on the job just yet going a very respectable 3 for 3 and not turning the ball over once. Freshman QB Mike Coughlin fell back to earth a bit hitting 50 percent of his passes, however, he also threw two interceptions—one to LB Tim Brady and another to safety Marty Tadman.
Tanyon Bissell led all Bronco receivers with 2 grabs for 50 yards and a TD. Sophomore Jeremy Childs was close behind with 49 yards on two receptions. RB Jeremy Avery showed that he can catch as well as run as he contributed 32 receiving yards and a TD to go along with his 10 rushing yards. Sophomore Aiona Key notched 29 yards on a reverse and brought in one pass for 12 yards.
The Bronco D continued to look strong contributing 2 INT with a 3rd coming during redzone drills as Marty Tadman took a Bush Hamdan pass 94 yards the other way for a score. The most spectacular turnover took place when Tadman robbed high-jump-specialist Aiona Key of a high Mike Coughlin throw, landing flat on his back with the pigskin.
