WHITE TEAM SLIPS PAST BLUE, 29-22, IN TIGERS' SPRING GAME
NASHVILLE --- White team backup quarterback Richard Hartman completed an 82-yard scoring pass to Mike Moore for what proved to be the winning score to lift the White team to a 29-22 victory in the 2004 Tennessee State spring football game Saturday afternoon in Hale Stadium. A sun-basked crowd of more than 4,000 were in attendance for the contest. The Blue team had led 22-14 before Maurice Young scored on a 30-yard run and Charles Anthony tied the game on the two-point conversion late in the third period. The winning TD followed with 11:15 remaining in the game. "It was good competition and we had guys on both side of the ball step up," said TSU head coach James Reese. "It was a good game for our fans to watch." Justin Williams had a pair of interceptions for the White team, including a 42-yard return for a TD for the game's first score, just two minutes into the game. Anthony, TSU's All-American running back, had a 7-yard scoring reception. Anthony had eight rushes for 54 yards in the game. Blue quarterback Riley Walker had a 5-yard scoring run and threw a 25-yard TD pass to Ivan Burley. Backup quarterback Dwayne Buchanan also had a 7-yard scoring run.
