“We really take pride in our defense,” said Whiteside, who has verbally committed to play for UC Berkeley. “We like to come out and set the tone and have a great attitude and know that we are setting the tone for the rest of the game.”
The offense also provided some highlights during the scrimmage, as did senior kicker Dillan Freiberg, who easily connected on field goals from 32 and 42 yards out.
Junior quarterback Austin Rios played well, Brinkley said. Rios connected on a 32-yard pass to Norton, who dived for the catch. Rios also delivered a touchdown pass, yet it was on a screen pass to Gomez, who did most of the work, following his blocks for 48 yards.
