Video look at UConn's spring football game

There will be more content coming later on today and in the coming days after the Blue team defeated the White 28-3 in the annual spring game.

Ron Johnson was the leading rusher with 91 yards on nine carries including 63-yard touchdown and added 24 yards on four receptions while Jason Thompson finished with 40 yards on 11 carries and added 27 yards on a pair of catches.

The workload for starting quarterback Bryant Shirreffs (9 of 12 for 95 yards passing, three carries for 38 yards) and top receiver Noel Thomas was a bit limited because they both are dealing with the flu.

Tyraiq Beals had a team-high six catches, Billy Williams had a team-high 63 receiving yards while Hergy Mayala's 48-yard catch was the longest of the day.

Garrett Anderson had a couple of early interceptions but finished 12 of 21 for 191 yards and had a 6-yard scoring run.

Jalen Stevens and Vanderbilt transfer Tre Bell had interceptions as did Javon Hadley to go with his game-high nine tackles while Cam Stapleton and Dallas Parker had two sacks each. The special teams highlight was Bobby Puyol's 47-yard field goal into the wind.

Here are the videos I shot from the event.
