Eveld excited for opportunity with first scrimmage
A year ago, Bobby Eveld was just starting to make a name for himself as a true freshman walk-on when the Bulls held their first scrimmage in Vero Beach. Today, with starter B.J. Daniels recovering from a minor hamstring injury Tuesday, he'll have a chance to work with the No. 1 offense some as the Bulls hold a scrimmage today in Vero Beach.
"With B.J. out and me getting to roll with the 1s a little bit, that helps a lot, because the 1s are just a little faster than 2s," said Eveld, who was placed on scholarship in January. "With the whole offense we're doing with the up-paced tempo, I think all that's for the better."
Eveld and freshman Matt Floyd will get most of the reps today, with walk-on Ryan Eppes also available, and Eveld said his main objective from the scrimmage is to show what the offense is capable of doing without making any critical mistakes.
"The best thing we can do is move the ball and protect it -- we don't want any turnovers," he said. "I don't think we have to try anything special -- it's the first scrimmage. If everyone goes out there and does their job, we'll do a great job of moving the ball."
We'll be back over in Vero and will have updates throughout the scrimmage at Twitter.com/gregauman and of course, afterwards here with lots of notes and video. ...
