Cherry & White


Tenth Spring Practice in the Books

PHILADELPHIA -- The Owls practiced today, wrapping up their 10th of 15 spring sessions.

The offense showed some explosiveness as junior RB Jahad Thomas, redshirt-sophomore RB Zaire Williams and redshirt-freshman RB David Hood all had touchdown bursts of nearly half the field. Redshirt-junior Samuel Benjamin, who is playing wide receiver and corner, scored twice including a pass from junior QB P.J. Walker that traveled 60-yards in the air.

"Sam shows the beauty of maturity….he was in my doghouse for a while but now he does everything right. His natural talent is coming through," said head coach Matt Rhule. "I think he'll be a weapon. I think the other receivers are doing a nice job but I think Sam's the guy, especially today, who has flashed."
The next practice will take place on Thursday, April 16. The annual Cherry & White Game will kickoff at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 25, on Chodoff Field at Edberg Olson Hall.
