FAU held its annual intra-squad spring game at FAU Stadium, and the red team coached by defensive analyst Monte Kiffin took down the grey team coached by defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer, 17-16.

The players and coaches were drafted to the two different teams earlier this week.

Here’s what we learned from the game:

Harrison Bryant looked sharp

The 6-4 tight end caught two touchdowns in the red team’s victorious effort.

James Charles was FAU’s best running back

Charles was FAU’s most productive runner, gaining chunk yardage on multiple occasions with his speed and agility in the open field.

Discipline was an issue

Defensive end Tim Bonner was ejected midway through the game after receiving an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. He threw punches in a fight that broke out after a play, starting a mini-brawl among his teammates. The quarrel was broken up quickly by FAU’s coaches, though.

Field goal kicking remains a concern

Kickers Christian Hoyos and Vladimir Rivas both missed at least one field goal attempt, including a late-game Hoyos miss that could have given the grey team a victory.

The defense was phenomenal

Defensive back Ahman Ross starred on a defense that excelled all afternoon, getting a sack and an interception.

FAU will wrap up spring ball next week after they review this game’s film and conduct three more practices.
