SPRING DAY 13: Halliday awaits return to Albi
Leach said the teams were split as evenly as possible, distributing the 1s and the 2s equally on both squads. Quarterbacks will throw to both squads -- the white and the crimson teams -- and will don the alternate grey jersey this weekend. The White Teams offensive starters are as follows: QBs: Austin Apodaca and Connor Halliday RBs: Teondray Caldwell, Leon Brooks and Theron West X WR: Dominique Williams Y WR: Robert Lewis H WR: Brett Bartolone Z WR: Gabe Marks LT: Eduardo Middleton LG: Niu Sale C: Elliott Bosch RG: Matt Goetz RT: Rico Forbes The Crimson Team's offensive starters are as follows: QBs: Austin Apodaca and Connor Halliday RBs: Marcus Mason and Jeremiah Laufasa X WR: Isiah Myers Y WR: Rickey Galvin H WR: Bobby Ratliff Z WR: Kristoff Williams LT: Gunnar Eklund LG: Joe Dahl C: Zack Brevick RG: John Fullington RT: Jacob Seydel The White Team's defensive starters are as follows: RE: Lyman Faoliu NT: Darryl Paulo LE: Austin Brown and Jeff Waldner BUCK: Kache Palacio WILL: Justin Sagote MIKE: Jared Byers and Jeremiah Allison SAM: Eric Oertel CB: Nolan Washington FS: Mitchell Peterson SS: Taylor Taliulu CB: Rahmel Dockery The Crimson Team's defensive starters are as follows: RE: Matt Bock NT: Moritz Christ LE: Xavier Cooper BUCK Ivan McLennan WILL: Tana Pritchard MIKE: Darryl Monroe SAM: Cyrus Coen CB: Anthony Carpenter FS: Casey Locker SS: David Bucannon CB: Damante Horton Back on the field, the mood was jovial and players and coaches were noticeably lighter on their feet in anticipation for Spokane Week and the scrimmage. Leach in particular said he believes Spokane weeks represent an opportunity to really catch the region's eye. "You get that chance to share it with our fans up there in Spokane," Leach said. "Had a great experience last year doing it." Leach said the entire Spokane week is a recruiting coup for the football program, but jokingly added he wished he could partake in some of the other "festivities." "They're going to have plenty of other activities up there and those are going to be fun and exciting too," Leach said. "Unfortunately I don't get to take part in those." Leach said the team expects to run about 80 plays Saturday, but added it's not an exact science. He hopes the 1s and 2s get a majority of the time, but reserves can get in and gain some valuable experience as the scrimmage wears on. One player who eagerly is anticipating the scrimmage is Ferris High School graduate Connor Halliday. Not having the chance to participate last season because of a liver injury he suffered late in the 2011 season, Halliday said he can't wait to get back out onto Joe Albi stadium to play in front of his loved ones. "I have a lot of good memories there," Halliday said. "I've broken a couple records, had a couple broken myself. It's really exciting to play where I played for four years of my life." Halliday said there will be "quite a bunch of Hallidays" in attendance, and added he hopes to put on a big show for the fans. "We're going to hit some explosive plays for the fans," Halliday said. "Hopefully establish a ground game as well." While the mood was breezy and light Thursday, it didn't stop some players from breaking out some fighting words. A few warnings were fired. "You just let everyone know White Team is going to whoop their [behinds]," said sophomore BUCK Kache Palacio. "We're going to get it."
