Jake Villarreal and the Waxahachie Indians wrapped up spring practices with the annual Green vs. White scrimmage Thursday at Lumpkins Stadium.
In front of a big crowd the Green team scored first on a 50-yard run by Ledarron Crawford before the game finished in a 12-12 tie.
Crawford’s run came on the Green’s second possession of the second half after the teams totaled just four first downs in the first half.
The game remained 6-0 going into the fourth quarter before three scores were made to result in a tie.
Juwon Culpepper tied the game at six with a 20-yard run for the White team before the White defense stepped up.
The defense forced a fumble and recovered it to set the offense up on the Green 27-yard line.
On the first play after the turnover Villarreal connected with A.J. Rodriguez for a 27-yard touchdown to put the White in front 12-6.
With time running low the Green team recovered a fumble to set the offense up in perfect position to tie the game.
After losing five yards on a reverse attempt on first down the Green team went to the air for the game-tieing score.
Christian Brewer sent a ball towards the endzone that first-year receiver Terrance Hawkins caught one-handed in tight coverage to tie the game.
Each team had one more possession before time ran out but could not find the end zone.
The teams were divided up evenly as Brooks Teeter and Villarreal were the quarterbacks for the White team while Brewer and Tyler Stevens were the quarterbacks for the Green team.
Several big defensive plays were made including an interception returned for 50 yards by Quin Sargent.
