Great Danes see 'a lot of positives' in Spring Game
ALBANY, N.Y. – Vincent Testaverde threw a pair of touchdown passes and Anthony Lang returned a fumble 64 yards for a score in the University at Albany football team’s annual Spring Game on Saturday at Casey Stadium.
The scrimmage marked the last of the Great Danes’ 15 spring practices.
“What I liked was, we had to integrate new people, new coaches, new schemes, and I think we did a good job of that this spring,” said Greg Gattuso, UAlbany’s head coach. “There was a lot of positives.”
The defense defeated the offense, 47-46, in a scoring system under which each side earned points for big plays.
“All in all, I think the defense, we’re stout,” Gattuso said. “We play hard.”
Testaverde completed 11 of his 18 passes. He threw touchdown passes to Jerah Reeves (27 yards) and Luke Thompson (20 yards).
Karl Mofor led the running backs with 64 yards.
“I thought Karl Mofor ran tremendously,” Gattuso said. “He looked outstanding.”
The Great Danes open the season Saturday, Sept. 1, on the road against Pittsburgh, of the Atlantic Coast Conference.
