TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- On a picture perfect afternoon at Memorial Stadium, the Indiana State Sycamore football team went through their 10th practice of the spring and spent most of the time in scrimmage situations with just four more practices left before the annual Spring Game on April 25.
In front of the Wabash Valley Football Coaches Association, the Sycamores put on a high-tempo display as the team mixed in 50 scrimmage plays around other drills. Things got off to a quick start as Mike Perish capped off the opening drive with a 35-yard scoring strike to Kyani Harris.
On the second and third possessions, the Sycamores worked on the run game with carries for Buck Logan, Deointe Buckley and LeMonte Booker. Booker and Buckley each got loose in the passing game as well.
Robert Tonyan, Jr., making the switch the wide receiver this spring, caught each of the first four balls thrown his direction and ended up scoring from 15 yards out off the toss from Perish.
The Sycamore coaching staff controlled most of the scrimmage with predetermined down and distance situtations and worked extensively in a 7-on-7 format. From the 10-yard line, Perish found Logan Buske, Tonyan, Harris and Sampson Levingston for scoring strikes.
On the goal line, the offense was flagged for a hold, but Perish found Buckley out of the backfield for a 13-yard touchdown in which he used some swift moves inside the five-yard line to reach the end zone.
Eric Heidorn hit seven field goals in a row from 30 to 49 yards and missed his lone attempt of the day from 51 yards out. Heidorn came right back to drill a 51-yard attempt to close out practice.
The Sycamores will next scrimmage on Thursday, April 17 inside Memorial Stadium at 3:15 p.m. (ET).
