GREENVILLE – The Greenville Green Wave hosted the Celina Bulldogs in a Tuesday morning football scrimmage with the Wave clearly outplaying the visitors on the day.

“A lot of great positives today,” said Greenville coach Bart Schmitz. “I thought we played fast, I thought we played physical and I thought we blocked and tackled extremely well.”

Greenville score on its first series of the morning with senior quarterback Tyler Beyke throwing to senior Marcus Wood good for a long pass with Wood breaking a tackle to get into the end zone.

The Green Wave defense kept the Bulldogs out of the end zone in the visitor’s first series of down.

Several other plays for the record on the day by the Greenville team was Gavin Williams bolting 75 yards for a touchdown and 10 yard sweep around the right end by John Butsch good for a touchdown.

Greenville is solid at the quarterback position with returning starter, Tyler Beyke and Noah Frazee and Hayden Bush.

“Our quarterback position it’s pretty deep right now – pretty good,” noted Schmitz. “We obviously have Tyler Beyke who is a returning starter, and you always love having a quarterback back. Then we have two young ones in Frazee and Bush. They are progressing along really well.”

Coach Schmitz and his staff took advantage of the first scrimmage of the season to determine where players are best positioned for the new season.

“We have some things we need to clean up,” Schmitz noted. “We have to be able to respond to situations better and we have to continue to know what we are doing offensively and defensively because we can’t have any mental laps on the field, but at the end of the day we have to be able to block and tackle. I thought we did pretty well with that today.”

“There towards the end I think our legs got a little tired,” Schmitz concluded, “but at the end of the day we played hard, fast, physical football.”
