Robertson Comes Up Big
August 20, 2003Bloomington, Ind. - The Indiana football team endured its final two-a-day of fall camp on Wednesday.
The morning session on the practice fields was a short one, with the Hoosiers keeping to special teams, individual position work, seven-on-seven drills and finally brief 11-on-11 drills before getting out of the heat and humidity.
The afternoon session was more involved, with the team going through a situational scrimmage. Stealing the show in the scrimmage was kicker Bryan Robertson, who was a perfect four-for-four on field goal attempts, with one of the field goals coming from 44 yards out and the other coming as time expired and the offense down by two.
The number one offense looked solid in the ground game, as Brian Lewis was the key figure in an opening drive that went 80 yards and resulted in an eight-yard Lewis touchdown run. The big play in that drive was a 40-yard play action pass from Matt LoVeccchio to tight end Aaron Halterman.
In addition to Lewis' solid performance, wide receiver Travis Haney and running back Lance Bennett also stood out on the offensive side of the ball. Haney had a couple sizeable grabs downfield, while Bennett ripped off a 35-yard run in the final series to cap off an already productive day.
The number three offense was able to get in the endzone when quarterback Blake Powers found fullback Alex Stscherban for a 10 yard strike.
The Indiana defense forced three turnovers in the scrimmage, with freshman cornerback Cedric Henry picking off a Blake Powers pass, junior safety Luke Stone forcing a fumble downfield that was recovered by sophomore cornerback Leonard Bryant and sophomore Mike Doyle forcing a fumble that was recovered by freshman linebacker Jake Powers. In addition to forcing the fumble, Doyle also recorded a drive-ending sack early in the scrimmage against the number two offense.
