USU Football: Adam Kennedy has an off day, says he has work to do

One refreshing thing about the senior quarterback is that there isn't any sandbagging in him. He's about as honest and as forthcoming as it gets.

That being said, Kennedy knows Saturday wasn't his best performance of camp, and that he picked a bad time, (in front of about 400 USU fans), to have an off performance.

With him and Chuckie Keeton locked in competition for the starting position, Kennedy went 5-9 for 39 yards. His two interceptions, however, stood out the most, as did Keeton's good performance of 113 yards and two touchdowns through the air.

"Obviously, Chuckie had the better day," Kennedy said. "It's still just one day. I have to get better and come out and have a good week of practice."

When asked, offensive coordinator Matt Wells said he would have to look at the film to see where Kennedy went wrong, and that the interceptions may not have been his fault. Also, Wells quickly pointed out that Kennedy performed very well in practice in the days leading up to the scrimmage.

"It's been his best stretch of camp," Wells said.

When analyzing Keeton, Wells said he consistently got the offense into the right play in relation to the defense, and that he was "athletic" in the pocket, consistently avoiding pressure to make plays.

Keeton completed 11-17 passes, including a 50-yard bomb to Travis Van Leeuwen, for a touchdown. His other scoring toss went to Travis Reynolds.

"I just wanted to be comfortable out there," Keeton said. "But I thought we played well as a team, and that's what I really care about."
