Wrapping up Yale's spring game

Let's start with a question I've been asked via email in the last few days as my return to providing Yale football coverage was a temporary one. I know there are people out there with concerns about the coverage of the Yale team moving forward. I believe I'd be talking out of school if I addressed them. The Register's sports editor Sean Barker (firstname.lastname@example.org) would be the best person to express those concerns and inquiries to.
As for yesterday's festivities, the injury bug continued to wreak havoc for Yale as it did during the 2015 season. Yale coach Tony Reno's main focus is getting his team as healthy as possible heading into preseason camp in August so yesterday's spring game wasn't really a spring game but more of a practice. The last 40 minutes or so featured 7 on 7 and 11 on 11 drills.
competition to be the starting quarterback isn't going to be determined until preseason camp and both guys had their moments on Saturday.
The best catch I saw came on a deep ball as Myles Gaines made a sweet grab. Jackson Stallings had a couple of tough catches in traffic while Ross Drwal was the busiest of the receivers as he got into the end zone a couple of times.
Nick Crowle had a sack as did Earl Chism while Daniel James had a tackle for loss with all three coming late in the 11 vs. 11 part of the festivities.
After the game/practice came to an end there was a classy ceremony with the Yale team honoring retiring Jonathan Edwards College Master Penny Laurans.

With so much of the event being conducted under controlled situations, I didn't provide a score.
