RICHMOND, Ky. (FOX 56) – The Eastern Kentucky University football team entered fall camp with high expectations to compete in the ASUN conference and the FBS as a whole. The team has only built on those expectations as camp has continued.

The Colonels held a scrimmage at Roy Kidd Stadium on Saturday afternoon, another step towards preparing for the season opener less than three weeks away.

Starting quarterback Parker McKinney played in the first two series before giving way for the other guys on the rest of the depth chart to showcase their talents.

ASUN defensive player of the year Matt Jackson did not play in the scrimmage but held a large role on the sidelines with coaching up his defensive teammates between plays.

EKU is planning on holding another scrimmage next Saturday as well. The Colonels prepare for Eastern Michigan on Friday, September 2nd in a 7 p.m. kickoff on the road.
