OGDEN -- Weber State's annual Purple and White game, once again more scrimmage than game, capped spring football in typical Top of Utah fashion on Saturday at Stewart Stadium with a little rain, then sunshine, followed by a chilly wind.
While consistently inconsistent weather is the hallmark of any spring here, Weber State coach Jody Sears said he was happy to see his team improving its own consistency during spring drills while adjusting to new coordinators on both sides of the ball -- former Montana head coach Robin Pflugrad on offense and promoted assistant Eric Lewis on defense.
To answer the biggest question the Wildcats had coming into the spring, Sears said he would huddle WSU's offensive staff on Tuesday to discuss naming a starting quarterback going into the summer.
Senior quarterback Jordan Adamczyk, the frontrunner to replaced departed starter Mike Hoke after backing him up for two years, threw three touchdowns and an interception, completing 10 of 14 passes for 174 yards. Two of those TD strikes were for over 60 yards, and two went to senior wide receiver Erik Walker.
"We started slow, we went three and out right away, but after that we clicked and went off," Adamczyk said. "The line blocked great. I had all the time in the world to throw. We went down and scored three times and in the two minute situation, all we needed was a field goal so we got down around the 30 and were able to kick the field goal and make it, so it was a good day."
Under Pflugrad, the Wildcats continue to run a hurry-up offense with similar plays but with slightly different terminology and a few tweaks. Saturday, Adamczyk said he wasn't worrying about who would be named the No. 1 quarterback going into the summer.
"I'm not even thinking about that. I want the best for this team and whatever the coaches choose, I understand and I support their decision," he said.
Junior college transfer Alfonso Medina, Adamczyk's main competition through the spring, completed 6 of 9 passes for 58 yards Saturday.
Sears said what impressed him most with Adamczyk on Saturday were his downfield throws and his management of the offense.
"I'm really happy with the way Jordan's progressed this spring and the way he's moving the offense, so we'll get together later in the week and see where we are with that," Sears said. "Alfonso Medina did a great job today too; he's done a great job all spring. Love where we're at (with the quarterback position)."
One of Walker's two catches, both for touchdowns, came on a 65-yard post route from Adamczyk; the other was a 17-yard grab near the goal line where Walker dove for the pylon to reach paydirt.
"He's my roommate," Adamczyk said of his connection with Walker. "It makes it a lot easier, we just talk football all the time. He's had a great spring; he's picked up the offense really well and is running awesome routes. It's really easy to throw to him. ... We jell really well together."
Walker said it was a good way to end spring ball, even though there is still more to work on to perfect the system being installed by Pflugrad.
"I really like this offense," he said. "It's a receiver-based offense, throwing it downfield or in the run game, we always have screens for the receivers, so we're always being involved.
"Obviously we've got to clean up some stuff with this new offense, but we're in a good spot going into the summer."
Junior running back Bo Bolen, back after two years away for an LDS mission to the Philippines, wore a red jersey Saturday and wasn't tackled after having a shoulder procedure done during the winter but led the Wildcats with five carries for 45 yards.
Redshirt freshman Braden Corpus, who was recruited out of Boise, Idaho, as a quarterback, caught six passes for 105 yards at wide receiver, including a 60-yard bomb from Adamczyk.
Defensively, juco transfer safety DJ Bush and senior safety Chris Wheeler each reeled in interceptions, while James Washington and Siamani Harris were credited with sacks.
"The defense got a few more turnovers than they have in the last few (Saturday scrimmages), so it was nice to see (that)," Sears said.
WSU opens its season at home against Stephen F. Austin on Aug. 31. If you're counting, that's just 138 days away.
