Several Players Take Advantage
of Opportunity in JSU Scrimmage
The first scrimmage of camp wasn't about offense or defense or even
the special teams, although each part had its moments. It was more about players making an impression.Note: JSU faculty, staff and students may access The

There was, Jacksonville State head coach Jack Crowe explained, an “open field of opportunity” in Paul Snow Stadium Tuesday and several
players took advantage of it.
While it figures to be at least one more scrimmage to determine whether they can take up permanent residence in the Gamecocks' main
dressing room, Crowe told the players at the end of practice he saw at least a half-dozen who never played for JSU before who'd get
a shot. While he didn't share those identities with the group, he did say afterwards he was impressed with linebacker Santez Mayes,
defensive backs Josh Cain and Abram Gordon, receivers James Wilkerson and Maurice Dupree, rover Alexander Henderson and offensive
lineman Landen Vickery.
“Opportunities are going to be limited to a smaller group,” Crowe said. “(Those players) are on their way to getting there, but we're
not going to do it as quickly as one day. I think we're another scrimmage away.”
