Spring football for 2014 came to an end Saturday as the Wayne State football team held its annual spring game at Cunningham Field in Wayne with the White team (offense) taking a 21-0 victory over the Black team (defense).
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.
The second half of the contest was situation drills as the teams ran several red-zone and goal line sequences to close out the spring game.
Osborn finished the day completing 11 of 16 passes for 178 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. Brody Rohach was 5 of 12 for 36 yards.
The top rusher for the Wildcats was Rashad Trimble with 39 yards on seven carries and a touchdown. Ryan Ludlow added 27 yards on six attempts while Osborn had 17 yards on three rushes.
Leading the receiving group was Adam Stark with four catches for 84 yards and a touchdown followed by Cole McDaniel with 51 yards on three receptions. Brian Kent added three catches for 19 yards.
Defensively, cornerback Jon Davis and linebackers Tyson McGill and Zach Bierman led the Wildcats with four tackles each. Johnny Saunders had a 75-yard interception return while Jeff Van Den Top and Abram Walker each recorded sacks.
