The USF Bulls gave their faithful several options to be excited about Saturday in their annual spring game.
Take, for instance, the starting quarterback. Quinton Flowers led his White team to a 32-19 victory over the Green. In so doing, he hit 15 of 22 passes for 129 yards.
But Asiantii Woulard wasn’t bad, either. He hit nine of 16 for 157 yards, including a 65-yard pass to Rodney Adams.
Then there was linebacker Auggie Sanchez (two interceptions), and Bruce Hector (two sacks). The day will do nothing to decrease the optimism over the Bulls, who were 8-5 a year ago.
“The beauty of our offense is any one of those guys can touch it at any time,” coach Willie Taggart said. “I think that’s why those guys like playing in it because they all know that they can get the ball every time we go out and snap the ball.”
The job now for Taggart might be to temper optimism.
“We put ourselves in that position,” said Sanchez of the support after a bowl appearance. “We made them come out and believe in something USF is doing and believe in USF football. We hope it keeps growing and that was a big turnout for just the spring game. We hope when the season comes it’s 60 times as many people.”
