TOWSON, Md. – On Saturday morning, the Tigers held their full scrimmage of the spring season and Coach Rob Ambrose was encouraged by most of what he saw.

“Considering it was the first time that we played 11-on-11 football since last November at New Hampshire, it wasn’t too bad,” said Coach Ambrose. “We have a lot of guys that we need to evaluate and this was a great opportunity to see them play.

“This was ‘real deal’ football,” he added. “We ran 90-to-100 plays and they were much-needed. We had a chance to play as 11 and it was encouraging.”

While he was pleased with most of the team’s performance, Ambrose admitted he was very disappointed in the play of his quarterbacks. Peter Athens, Joe Brennan and Connor Frazier have been battling for the starting position and none of them has stepped up to claim the job.

“We have been very disappointed with the play of the quarterbacks – all of them,” said Ambrose. “We expect better. We need to find someone who can move the ball consistently and run the offense with confidence. But, we’ve got a lot of practices to figure that out.”

The Tigers will resume their spring practice schedule on Tuesday morning at 5:30 a.m.
