Lot of yards, no points
In terms of total offense, White should have won the game. And it should have at least scored some points.
White ended the spring game with 63 plays for 229 yards, but two turnovers and a turnover on downs caused White not to score three different times in the red zone.
Green rattled off 45 plays and racked up 192 yards.
Big day for tight ends
With Ryan Dvorak and Stephen Huckaby both graduated off of last season’s team, tight end was a question mark for the RiverHawks heading into the 2013 season.
But if the spring game proved anything it’s that NSU should be just fine at that position.
Between both Green and White, tight ends — Kyle Matheson, Marco Renteria and Logan Andrews — combined for six catches for 62 yards. Matheson also had a scoring grab of two yards in the fourth quarter.
At halftime of the spring game, players from last season’s team were honored for all their postseason accolades. Players who hauled in those honors were running back Joel Rockmore, linebacker Langston Jones, quarterback Johnny Deaton, wide receiver Jermaine Sherman, offensive linemen Ethan James and Michael Bowie, safety Victor Johnson, cornerback Vernon Jones and place kicker Drew Patton.
Greg Richmond and Mike Knoll are no longer on the NSU’s coaching staff, but both returned Saturday to take in the spring game festivities.
Knoll retired following NSU’s 2012 season, and Richmond opted to explore another career opportunity.
