WEEK THREE OF SPRING CAMP
The Utes are in their third week of spring drills. There is one practice and a scrimmage remaining this week. Both will be held at the McCarthey Practice Fields. Thursday's practice is scheduled for 3:15-5:15 p.m. The time for the scrimmage has changed: It will start at 8:30 a.m. and go for around 100 plays. All practices and scrimmages in the spring are open to the public.
The third-annual Red-White game will be held in Rice-Eccles Stadium on Saturday, April 23 starting at noon. It is free to the public and the players will sign autographs after the game. A pancake breakfast and a Muss flag football game will precede the Red-White game. The pancake breakfast costs $2 per person and food will be served from 9:00-10:30 a.m. in the Olympic Cauldron Park (the south plaza of Rice-Eccles Stadium). The Muss game will start at 11 a.m.
The Red-White game will be consist of four 12-minute periods. The clock will stop in normal situations in the first half and the second half will feature a running clock. Offensive coordinator Andy Ludwig and defensive coordinator Gary Andersen
will serve as the head coaches at the Red-White game. Teams will be chosen next week.
Promising H-back Brent Casteel
returned to practice on April 12, just eight days after arthroscopic knee surgery ... Justin Walker
will have his right knee scoped on April 14 and will miss the rest of spring ball. Walker moved back to wide receiver last week. He came to Utah as a wideout but moved to defensive back late last season ... Running back Joe Johnson
is questionable for the remainder of the spring with an ankle sprain and defensive back Steve Tate
is in a similar situation due to a thigh contusion ... A battle is shaping up at free safety, where Tim Harris
is having an outstanding spring and is challenging projected starter Casey Evans
... At running back, Quinton Ganther
and Darryl Poston
are listed as co-starters this week ... Three players will rotate interchangeably at tackle and nose guard. They are Steve Fifita
, Kite Afeaki
and Kelly Talavou
