Just past the midway point of fall training camp, the Sacramento State football team will compete in its first scrimmage of the season on Sat., Aug. 18. The scrimmage will take place inside Hornet Stadium with the team taking the field at 9:30 a.m. and action getting under way at approximately 10 a.m.
The scrimmage will put the team through a variety of situations ranging from the offense being backed up near its end zone to red zone execution on the other end of the field.
BRING THE FAMILY
Following the scrimmage, Sacramento State will host its third annual Bee a Hornet event. The free event is open to children 13 and under and will take place on the stadium turf. Children will have the opportunity to run through drills with Hornet players as well as get autographs from and take pictures with members of the team.
KNOCKING THEM DOWN
Not all of training camp is spent on the field or with the players' heads buried in the playbook. This past Sunday, the team received a reprieve with its second annual trip to Country Club Lanes for a bowling tournament.
The top honor went to redshirt freshman wide receiver who tallied an impressive 188.
