Green goes off in NSU spring game


TAHLEQUAH — Then, as White was poised to put points on the scoreboard on its second possession of the second period, Harris picked off Corey Meadors’ pass and out-raced every member of the White team for the score.

“That felt great,” Harris said. “It was kind of like a crescendo to the build up out here. Everybody played well, and I’m just happy to do what I can for the team.”

Drew Patton would tack on a 24-yard field goal in the second quarter, and Green would lead 16-0 at halftime.

The second half was about wrapping things up healthy more than anything else. That was the RiverHawks’ attitude after two quarterbacks — Green’s Josh Cousins and White’s Thor Long — went down with injuries in the first half.

According to Evans, Long bruised his shoulder trying to recover a fumble, and Cousins also suffered a shoulder-related injury after being tackled by James Renfrow in the second quarter.

“They have to learn how to play without redshirts on like they have in practice. They have to learn to avoid things and get down at times,” Evans said. “That’s part of the learning process at quarterback, and they haven’t had many opportunities to do that.”

Evans predicted that both would be fine before players started reporting for fall camp in early August.

The two signal-caller injuries lended itself to more rushing plays in the second half, especially in the fourth quarter. For Green, Ashdon Perry led the way on the ground with four rushes for 37 yards (all on one drive). Zack Simmons chipped in with eight carries for 31 yards.

White used a heavy dose of Joel Rockmore and Terrence Dixon in the second half with Meadors, a walk-on, at quarterback. Both Rockmore and Dixon rushed 15 times, with Rockmore recording 65 yards on the ground. Dixon had 63.
