The White team got on the board on their second drive of the game as quarterback Zach Osborn found tight end Joe Trouba on a 12-yard pass play with 7:11 to go in the first quarter, giving the White a 7-0 lead following Tyler Lindsay’s PAT kick.
The offense posted two more scores in the second quarter to make the final 21-0 as Osborn connected with wide receiver Adam Stark on a 38-yard scoring strike followed by a Rashad Trimble 23-yard run with 8:11 to go in the second quarter.
