FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- The Northern Arizona football team has officially wrapped up its fall camp. The Lumberjacks ended their final day of camp with a scrimmage that included an autograph session afterwards.
“Camp has been really productive,” said head coach Jerome Souers. “The team has grown a lot closer and has demonstrated a good work ethic to set the stage for the rest of the season.”
For the majority of the camp it appeared as if it was the offense that needed to catch up with the defense. Although the defense put on a strong performance, the offense was able to get better day by day.
“I thought that we got better at practicing and converting that into quality performance,” Souers said. “The scrimmage today saw our ones (starters) really pick up the tempo. I thought that they were playing closer to game speed.”
The Lumberjacks have gone through all of fall camp without naming a starting quarterback. The decision has come down to junior Chase Cartwright or sophomore Kyren Poe.
“Coach Scangarello and I are going to sit down and evaluate everything as far as the quarterback situation goes,” said Souers. “We’ll be prepared to address that with the team tomorrow.”
With fall camp over, the Lumberjacks will focus their attention on the Aug. 30 season opener at Arizona.
