TOWSON, Md. - The Tiger football team held its final scrimmage of the spring on Saturday afternoon and the defense took advantage of the opportunity to show off.

The defense dominated the 90-play scrimmage as the front line constantly pressured all four quarterbacks that played in the scrimmage.

Ryan Delaire, a transfer from the University of Massachusetts, continued his outstanding spring. Delaire, a 6-4, 245-pound native of Windsor, Connecticut, has been a defensive standout all spring.

"Ryan has a great motor," says Towson Coach Rob Ambrose. "The more we push him, the better he plays.

"He is a very good football," he added. "But he is also a very good person. There have been many times when we get a transfer student from a I-A school, that player comes in here thinking they are better than they are. But Ryan is a very humble guy. He is thankful for the opportunity and he is grateful to be part of our program."

Coach Ambrose also praised the work of defensive end Greg Grant. He said, "Greg just keeps doing things the right way. Every week he gets better."

The Tigers' starting trio of linebackers, Monte Gaddis, Bryton Barr and Telvion Clark, also excelled in Saturday's scrimmage.

"Last year, all three of those guys were new and they played well," added Ambrose. "Now. they have all played together for a while and they are playing together. They are fun to watch."

Gaddis and Barr each interecepted a pass in the scrimmage.

The Tigers, who have three practice sessions remaining, are getting set for Tiger Bowl III, which is scheduled for Saturday, April 27.
