Tech Defense Dominates Offense In Scrimmage

Posted:
BLACKSBURG, Va. (WVVA) -- Good news or bad news? There's both when it comes to the most recent Virginia Tech football scrimmage.

Good news first: the defense is in good form. They dominated the offense up and down the field at Lane Stadium, Saturday. Dadi Nicholas and Lucas Maddy were unblockable at times and the rest of the defense is keeping up with Bud Foster's pace.

Bad news: the offense did not have a good day. At all.

"I thought today had 100 percent lack of focus...the intensity was terrible," said offensive coordinator, Scott Loeffler. "I'm really disappointed in how we walked out on the field and how we competed."

Quarterbacks Mark Leal and Brenden Motley both threw touchdown passes but those scores were the lone bright spots, offensively. Defensively, Foster was much happier than his counterpart. 

"I thought we improved. I really think, in this last week, I saw an improvement, especially in some of our younger kids," said Foster. "I saw our end play get better, I saw our linebacker play get better so that was encouraging."

The Hokies' annual spring game is set for next Saturday at Lane Stadium.
