ATLANTA-With one week of spring practice remaining, Georgia State head coach Trent Miles ran his second scrimmage on Saturday morning at the GSU Football Practice Complex.
Redshirt-junior Rendell Wilder ran seven times for 84 yards, including an impressive 67-yard run around the outside midway through the scrimmage.
“I like the improvement we had on offense,” commented head coach Trent Miles. “We executed a lot of things better. However, we still had too many turnovers and penalties. I also thought the defense improved in certain situations.
“Both sides are still learning what we expect. We have to continue to work and improve with the personnel we have.”
“I thought Avery did some really nice things today,” commented Miles. “He showed some good speed and was able to get some yards after the catch. Jordan Giles is doing a nice job catching the ball and is starting to show some strong senior leadership.”
Bell finished the day 8-for-20 for 61 yards and that one interception, while newcomer Clay Chastain went 6-for-12 for 44 yards.
Redshirt-junior Duvall Smith ran four times for 16 yards and a touchdown.
Redshirt-junior tight end Kesean Peterson caught a 44-yard pass from McLane and redshirt-senior LaSalle Ledlum finished the day with two catches for 30 yards.
Will Lutz led the special team efforts with 48-yard and 21-yard field goals, while junior David Miller made a 39-yard attempt.
Georgia State’s Blue-White Spring Game is scheduled for Saturday, April 20 at 1 p.m. at the Georgia Dome. Admission is free.
