BLACKSBURG – Logan Thomas threw for 110 yards and Eddie Whitley intercepted a pass to headline a Virginia Tech spring scrimmage on Wednesday night at Lane Stadium.
Thomas completed 8 of 17 for 110 yards and one interception. Tech’s offense did not score a touchdown, but again, the coaching staff flipped the offense around inside the red zone. The lone score in the scrimmage came on a 32-yard field goal by kicker Cody Journell.
It was not the best of days for Tech’s kickers, as they missed four field goals – from 49, 43 and 43 yards. The fourth was a 44-yard attempt by Journell that was blocked by Jayron Hosley, who finished with three tackles, including one for a loss.
Freshman Adeboye Aromire led the defense standouts with six tackles, while Jeron Gouveia-Winslow added five tackles (two solo). Alonzo Tweedy finished with four, including one for a loss. Tariq Edwards had three tackles and a pass break-up.
Quarterback Ju-Ju Clayton saw his first action in a scrimmage and completed 6 of 10 for 52 yards. Mark Leal completed 2 of 5 for 25 yards and Trey Gresh completed 1 of 3 for 11 yards.
Jarrett Boykin caught six passes for 61 yards, and Marcus Davis hauled in three for 51 yards.
The next open scrimmage will be held next Friday, April 15, at 7 p.m.
