Grad transfer Chase Brice shines for Duke in 75-play scrimmage
Clemson grad transfer Chase Brice was 6-for-9 for 151 yards and a touchdown to highlight the 75-play Duke football scrimmage Saturday.
Redshirt junior Chris Katrenick was four-of-eight through the air for 49 yards.
All three quarterbacks battling for the starting position took repetitions with the first unit.
“Deon ran through people today,” redshirt junior offensive lineman Casey Holman said. “He ran hard and didn’t hesitate. He followed our guys that created the holes for him and ran with energy. He wanted it.”
Senior safety Michael Carter II and redshirt sophomore cornerback Jeremiah Lewis led the Duke defense with two pass breakups each. Redshirt junior cornerback Josh Blackwell returned a fumble 26 yards for a touchdown.
“I felt good out there,” Carter II said. “Just being around the guys and feeding off each other, it was just good to be out there and sort of in a game simulation. Just to be live and all-out without any restraints was great.”
Duke’s amended 2020 schedule has the Blue Devils scheduled to kick off the season on the road at Notre Dame on Sept. 12.
Duke hosts Virginia Tech on Oct. 3 and plays at Virginia on Nov. 14.
