Aug. 17, 2007

TEMPE, Ariz. -

          The Sun Devils held their second scrimmage of the preseason Friday in front of 5,200 fans at Sun Devil Stadium, and the defense controlled the action for much of the night, allowing only two touchdowns and recording three sacks.

          After the offense began the scrimmage with a 3-and-out, junior linebacker Garrett Judah blocked senior punter Jonathan Johnson's punt and fellow junior linebacker Antone Saulsberry returned it for a touchdown.

          Sophomore running back Jarrell Woods put the Devils in the end zone for the first time, finishing off a long drive by running six yards for a score.

          Junior quarterback Rudy Carpenter then connected with freshman receiver Kerry Taylor for a 47-yard touchdown pass to cap the scoring for the night.

          Carpenter finished 11-20 for 141 yards, while sophomore Danny Sullivan was 9-17, including a stretch where he completed six straight passes. Freshman Samson Szakacsy also completed six of his seven pass attempts in his first action at Sun Devil Stadium.

          In the kicking game, freshman Thomas Weber was 2-3 on field goals, hitting from 31 and 47 yards while fellow freshman Zach Richards was 1-2, making a 42-yarder on his first attempt. Weber also had a 57-yard punt while Johnson had three punts of 50 yards or more.

          Senior running back Ryan Torain led the Sun Devil offense with 60 rushing yards on just five carries, including a 50-yarder on the offense's second possession, while Woods finished with 37 rushing yards on eight carries with a touchdown.

          For the second straight scrimmage Kerry Taylor led all receivers with five catches for 73 yards and the score. Kyle Williams added four grabs for 27 yards, while Brent Miller hauled in two balls for 35 yards,

          The team will return to action for a mock game at Sun Devil Stadium on August 24th at 6:15 p.m., with Fan Appreciation set to take place immediately after.
