SU triumphs in annual Shippensburg University Red-White Spring Game

The Shippensburg University football team concluded its spring practice schedule with the annual Red-White Spring Game on a stormy Saturday at Seth Grove Stadium.

The Red Team, consisting of the first team offense and second team defense, defeated the White Team, made up of the first team defense and second team offense, by a 28-0 final score.

After a lightning storm brought about a delayed start, newcomer Onasis Neely the lightning on to the field, scoring a pair of rushing touchdowns to help lift the Red Team to victory.

Junior Jake DeLuccia also scored a rushing touchdown for the Red Team, while junior tight end Ethan Smerecki added a touchdown reception.

Steady rain made passing a chore early, but conditions improved enough as the day crept on to allow redshirt-freshman Joey McCracken to stand out among the quarterback group.

Redshirt-sophomore defensive back Micah Lowry Jr. recorded a key interception for the Red Team defense.

The Raiders will kick-off the 2023 fall season Saturday, September 2 against Newberry College at Seth Grove Stadium.
