Warhawks prepared for the season ahead, donning their pads and practice jerseys and taking to Malone Stadium to face off in their second and final scrimmage of the preseason.

Head coach Todd Berry begins his sixth year with a 26-33 record overall. The team finished the season last year with a 4-8 record overall and a 3-5 record in the Sun Belt Conference.

The scrimmage began with special teams including PAT and field goal drills before moving to individual and pursuit drills.

Full 11-on 11-action followed with the offense and defense lining up against one another in various game time situations.

The scrimmage lasted around two and a half hours and showcased a myriad of offensive and defensive formations.

This game time action was followed by punt and kickoff return drills before the coaches called it a night.

After the football scrimmage, the Campus Activities Board treated fans to a free screening of the movie “Avengers: Age of Ultron” in the stadium.

Players and coaches also lined up to sign autographs.

The Warhawks look ahead to their season opener against Georgia on Sept. 5 in Athens, Georgia.

Georgia finished last season with a 10-3 record overall and a 6-3 record in the SEC East.

The Warhawks are 0-3 all-time versus the Georgia Bulldogs.
