  • They Both Die at the End – General Review
    Summer break is the perfect opportunity to get back into reading. Adam Silvera’s (2017) novel, They Both Die at the End, can serve as a stepping stone into the realm of reading. The pace is fast, action-packed, and develops loveable characters. Also, Silvera switches point of view each chapter where narration mainly focuses on the protagonists, […]

Orange team defeats White team in Clawson’s first showing

BGSU football fans were treated to their first public showing of new coach Dave Clawson’s Falcons on Saturday. In the team’s annual spring game the Falcon offense outscored the defense 66-47. ‘It was good. It was competitive,’ Clawson said. ‘The thing I like about our football team right now is that I don’t think one side overwhelms the other.’ Clawson was right on this day as both the offense and defense showed moments of strength and weakness. ‘The offense made plays; the defense made plays. That’s what we’re here to do,’ redshirt sophomore receiver Ray Hutson said. The BGSU defense started off the game looking strong, holding the offense to five consecutive three-and-outs to open things up. ‘We had a slow start, obviously, but we got things going and got some good work in,’ senior starting quarterback Tyler Sheehan said. Indeed the offense did eventually get things going, but for much of the game it was the second string offense, led by senior quarterback Andrew Beam, who carried the Orange team. Beam finished the game 10-of-18 for 160 yards. He also added a 38-yard touchdown pass to Hutson. Third sting quarterback Aaron Pankratz, a redshirt freshman, gave fans a possible glimpse into the future by putting up some decent numbers of his own. Though Pankratz only managed to complete three passes out of eight attempts, he did throw two touchdown passes, one to Hutson and another, a 52-yard throw, to Chris Sheidt. Hutson had the most impressive day of any receiver as he hauled in two touchdowns and piled up 65 yards through the air, the most of any receiver. ‘Everybody out here is competing, hopefully the second team can push that first team, make them better,’ Hutson said. Andrew Johnson led the Falcon defense with five solo tackles, including two sacks and three tackles behind the line of scrimmage. Special teams even offered the fans some excitement when new kicker Gerry Phillips attempted a field goal of over 50 yards, just missing it. Phillips also looked good on kickoffs and extra points, finishing the game free of any blunders. The game wasn’t without its share of disappointing moments though. Starting running back Willie Geter turned in a mediocre showing, gain only 21 yards on 11 carries. Geter’s lack of production was magnified by the play of second and third string backs Chris Bullock and Steve Dunlop, who had 88 and 106 yards, respectively. ‘I think we progressed a lot over the spring, with the system and everything we’ve been doing,’ Bullock said. Freddie Barnes, who had been named a captain for the upcoming fall season prior to the game, also had his share of bad moments. Barnes dropped two passes, including one deep ball from Sheehan that likely would have resulted in a touchdown. All in all, Barnes still had the most receptions of any player with five, and the third most receiving yards with 58. The scoring of the game went back and forth all afternoon, providing the fans with an entertaining competition. ‘We’re here to work, and I think we put on a good show for the fans,’ Sheehan said. In fact they did, now all BGSU fans can do is hope to see more of the same when the team opens up the season against Troy on Sept. 3 at Doyt Perry Stadium.
