WEST POINT  - The Army football team ended the first week of classes with a situational scrimmage on Saturday afternoon at Michie Stadium.

Both offensive and defensive squads went up against scout teams in situations like red zone and two-minute drills. Special team work was also included with field goals, punts and kickoffs throughout the scrimmage.

Quarterbacks Angel Santiago and A.J. Schurr got work in with the top offensive unit as did PaulAndrew Rhoden, who got time at fullback and scored a 3-yard touchdown. Joining Rhoden in the first team backfield was Terry Baggett and Joe Walker. Richie Smith also got some rep in the backfield with the No. 1 offense.

Santiago and Schurr each led scoring drives with Santiago earning his in the opening drive of the scrimmage, which led to a short field goal from Daniel Grochowski. Schurr’s drive came later and it was highlighted by a long run from Rhoden and a big catch from Justin Newman. Schurr capped off the drive with a scrambling touchdown run.

Josh Jenkins was the highlight on special teams with three long returns. He returned a kickoff 50 yards to get to the opponent’s 40-yard line and had a pair of nice punt returns as well.
