Carthel praises effort of Harris in scrimmage
West Texas A&M went through a 95-play controlled football scrimmage Sunday afternoon at Kimbrough Memorial Stadium.
The scrimmage came at the end of two weeks of spring drills.
The offensive unit put seven scores on the board, including a 34-yard touchdown catch and run from quarterback Taylor Harris to Jeremy Watson. Placekicker James Chandler also was a perfect four-of-four on field goal attempts, making efforts of 23, 25, 24 and 22 yards.
Harris, the leading candidate to replace departed Keith Null at quarterback, also completed a scrimmage-long 41-yard pass to receiver Wade Langley.
"I thought Taylor Harris did very well today," said WT head coach Don Carthel.
"He really only made one bad pass during some very windy conditions. I also liked the play of our four wide receivers, Tyson Williams, A.J. Ruffins, Wade Langley and Kendrick Cutsinger. They are our starters at this point, but they are young and need the reps. Kelvin Thompson also did a good job of running the ball today."

Offense scores twice in A&M-Commerce scrimmage
COMMERCE — House to Quander.
That was the leading combination during Texas A&M University-Commerce’s scrimmage that capped spring football training on Saturday.
Quarterback Darby House, a redshirt freshman from Skidmore-Tynan, went 13-of-23 passing for 103 yards, one interception and one touchdown as the offense went against the defense.
That touchdown pass covered 28 yards to Quander, who’s a senior from Austin. Quander led all receivers with eight catches for 64 yards.
The Lion offense also picked up a 9-yard touchdown run from Jamar Mosely, plus two extra points from Juan Velasco and a 27-yard field goal from Velasco. The final score wound up 17-0. The Lions did not do a true spring game due to low numbers during the transition period with the hiring of new head coach Guy Morriss.
