Thomas, Gayle with big days at Tech scrimmage
Trey Gresh's pass to Randall Dunn accounts for game's lone TD

BLACKSBURG – Logan Thomas threw for 75 yards and James Gayle had two sacks to headline Virginia Tech’s scrimmage on Saturday afternoon at Lane Stadium.

Thomas completed 8 of 14 for 75 yards, with a long of 22 that went to Marcus Davis. Davis led all receivers with four catches for 47 yards. On the rushing side, Josh Oglesby rushed for 32 yards on eight carries and James Hopper finished with 23 yards on eight carries. David Wilson had 15 yards on four carries.

The lone touchdown of the scrimmage came on a Trey Gresh 69-yard scoring pass to tight end Randall Dunn against Tech’s third-team defense. Gresh completed 4 of 8 for 96 yards, with the touchdown and an interception, while Mark Leal completed 6 of 11 for 34 yards. Dunn caught two passes for a scrimmage-high 82 yards.

Defensively, Gayle recorded three tackles, including the two sacks. Barquell Rivers and Jayron Hosley led everyone with seven tackles each, and both had sacks. Eddie Whitley, Duan Perez-Means and Nick Acree each had five tackles, and Brian Laiti had the scrimmage’s lone interception.

The offense did not run any red-zone plays, as the coaching staff flipped things around any time the offense reached the red zone.

The next open scrimmage will be held next Friday, April 15, at 7 p.m.
