ATHENS — Two touchdown receptions by tight end Jay Rome highlighted the Georgia football team’s scrimmage at Sanford Stadium on Saturday morning.

Rome, a redshirt freshman, hauled in a 30-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Hutson Mason during regulation, then pulled down a leaping touchdown pass from Parker Welch during goal-line drills at the end of scrimmage.

Quarterback Aaron Murray finished 9 of 18 for 74 yards, Mason went 5 of 12 for 59 yards and Christian LeMay finished 2 of 7 for 44 yards. Justin Scott-Wesley led the receivers with 51 yards on three grabs. Marlon Brown had two catches for 37 yards and Rome followed with his 30-yarder. The ground game was fairly evenly spread out: Brandon Harton (8-24), Kyle Karempelis (8-22), Keith Marshall (5-18), Isaiah Crowell (4-19) and Ken Malcome (4-13). Malcome and Crowell each scored a touchdown in the goal-line drills.

Safety Shawn Williams paced the defense with 4 1/2 tackles, two pass breakups and an interception that he returned 34 yards. Defensive end Ray Drew and cornerback Branden Smith each had four tackles. Nose tackle Mike Thornton and linebacker Chase Vasser, a Chestatee High grad, each had 3.5 sacks. Linebacker Mike Gilliard also had an interception.
