Standout performers: Whittingham noted performances by wide receivers Dres Anderson and Kenneth Scott; tight end Westlee Tonga; quarterbacks Travis Wilson and Kendal Thompson; and defensive back Monte Seabrook, who made a couple of interceptions. Whittingham said defensive tackle Seni Fauonuku had a good day as well.

Quotable: “I was pretty hard on (the quarterbacks) after the scrimmage and they’ve bounced back. They’ve done a nice job.” — Kyle Whittingham
