UWE HOST PRE-SEASON SCRIMMAGE

The Titans along with Coventry Jets and Bath Spa Bulldogs were the invitees of a competitive training and scrimmage day in preparation for the up and coming 2013/14 BUAFL season. UWE Bullets hosted what was to be a very productive and intense day of American Football. A big thank you goes out to the whole Bullets set up for putting on a very well organised session and to Coventry and Bath Spa for being part of the occasion. 

The day began with a talk from one of BUAFL's officials who clarified some of the more discrepant rules as well as some adjustments in emphasis that have been made for the year to come. The teams then took to the field and went through positional drills, one on ones and the different special teams units. The talent across the board looked to be pretty strong.

The teams then faced off with offense versus defense scrimmages and then on to a more game like situation with the chains moving and offenses and defenses interchanging with the turnover of the ball. Swansea offensive unit impressed all day with their power run game, finding the endzone with unerring regularity. The defensive side of the ball took some time to get going. However, when it did the front seven found penetration and some big plays were made. 

Special mentions go out to running backs Josh Hughes and rookie Jacob Amadi as well as Christopher Aldred who lead the offense well from the quarterback position. Defensive Captain Adam Salter lead his unit well and Dave Prince, who recorded three interceptions on the day, was a constant threat. The Titans can be pleased with their performance yet much focus on transferring that form onto the field against Bristol Barracuda week one.
