A scrimmage isn’t the same as a game, but it’s definitely still fun to watch. On Friday, the Warriors started off their fall season with a scrimmage against the Houston Christian Mustangs, where the JV and Varsity teams both took the field during the evening and ran plays against an opposing team. JV went first, starting their first series with an appearance from their first string defense. FS/WR Ian Stavinoha stood out from the very first play, intercepting a pass attempt by the opposing quarterback. He had several tackles as well. The first string JV offense began their series with a long run by RB/OLB Justin Resurreccion and several passes from QB Caden Alderson. RB/OLB Kevin Snaider and Ian Stavinoha rushed for the majority of the yardage, with Ian scoring a touchdown. The JV defense performed well during the rest of the night with a sack by G/C Eli Morris, a broken up pass by MLB/FB Grayson Alexander, and a tipped pass by Justin Resurreccion.

The Varsity began with a series on defense, where throughout the scrimmage, several Warriors made their presence known to the Mustangs’ offense. They smothered the run game and kept Houston Christian from scoring. OLB Peter Zyblot, OLB Caleb Harmon, CB/RB Daniel Abraham, and DE Jeremiah Wilkins each had at least four tackles, and OLB Reagan Zyblot and DT Mark Haynes also contributed to multiple stops. On the starting offense, Daniel and RB Garrett England provided the rushing yards and the only points scored in the Varsity scrimmage, with Garrett catching a touchdown pass and Daniel rushing for an extra two points. In addition to his touchdown pass, QB Drew Harrison established himself in the run game with several successful rushing attempts. When the Warriors returned to defense, CB Anthony Carias and CB/WR Jackson Resurreccion broke up a combined two passes. Back on offense, the starting lineup got their own passing game going with receptions by TE Cameron Frank, WR Trevor Parker, and Jackson Resurreccion. Overall, the Varsity team provided a preview of what to expect during the season: a revamped offense and a dominant defense.
