Several “what-if” moments in the passing game today, completions that weren't quite there Thursday at Stanford (under a much heavier pass rush, obviously). Mariota completed balls to Thomas, Hawkins and then Evan Baylis for a touchdown in the clutch period, and hit Thomas and Hawkins again both in seven-on and in a team period late in the day.
Jake Rodrigues and Eric Dungy also hooked up for a TD in seven-on. Defensively, Oshay Dunmore ran with Thomas to break up a pass in seven-on, and safety Reggie Daniels made a couple nice plays in the passing game over the course of the morning. Thomas Tyner and Lane Roseberry broke away for long TD runs within moments of each other midway through the morning, the latter with the scout team.

“I got to tell you, I think tailgating and watching a football game in the stands might be a little more fun than playing offensive line,” York said. “I’m so proud of these guys. It’s so fun to watch guys that came in as 17 year olds just getting to grow into awesome football players and awesome men. I couldn't be more proud of all those guys.”
