Duck Stuff: Saturday Edition

Rob Moseley has your Friday practice report.

Scout-team scrimmage highlights: Morgan Mahalak’s morning was one of extremes. He started with four incompletions; a couple were thrown away under pressure and one was a nice breakup by Mattrell McGraw, as Jacob Breeland looked like he was about to secure a reception and cross the goal line. Mahalak then fired four straight touchdown passes, including a rollout throw on the run to Casey Eugenio. Another was to Jeff Bieber, who caught yet another TD pass from Mahalak on the last play of the 10-minute scrimmage, a back shoulder throw into the end zone on fourth-and-goal
