A quick look at Auburn’s first scrimmage of this spring

Auburn Tigers’ first scrimmage of this spring included some really impressive hits, including take-downs of three quarterbacks, viz. Jeremy Johnson, John Franklin III and Sean White.

The three quarterbacks rotated with the first and second team units. Touchdown passes weren’t frequent on the scoring slate, but they also didn’t throw interceptions.

Johnson made his presence felt by throwing a 75-yard touchdown pass to the team’s running back Roc Thomas on a wheel route, while Franklin III broke off a surprising 70-yard run.
