Head Coach Chad Morris discussed Whaley and his playing time in the game, “I thought he had been limited the majority of spring. He had really just come back and done some drill work and 11-on-11 the last couple of practices just a little bit. He felt good and ready to go and he needed the work. He needed as much as he could’ve gotten today. This was about having a good workout. I mean I know it’s a spring game, but we had to get good execution, good workout out of this thing. This was the last full padded live practice that we’re going to have until the fall. So, he needed everything he could get today. It was good to see him out there... he missed a few runs but he made some. As the scrimmage went on I thought he got better. ”
Quarterback Ben Hicks also spoke on the impact of Whaley, “I think it was great having Devwah out there. We haven’t had a whole lot of depth but having him back there really opened up the running game. He ran the ball hard and broke some tackles.”
