Football: Goff throws 3 TDs in 1st scrimmage

It was just a 45-minute spring scrimmage, but freshman Jared Goff continues to shine, throwing three TD passes to highlight a performance by Cal’s quarterbacks that pleased coach Sonny Dykes.

Goff, who arrived on campus mid-year from Marin Catholic HS in Kentfield, was 13 for 2 for 168 yards. Redshirt freshman Zach Kline, formerly of San Ramon Valley HS in Danville, was 6 for 8 for 134 yards, including a 97-yard TD to Joel Willis. Sophomore Austin Hinder was 6 for 10 for 83 yards and a TD.

“We were trying to throw every possible scenario that we could throw at them today to see if it affected their thought process or the way they played or handled things,” Dykes said. “I didn’t think it affected any of them. I thought they all did a good job of just trying to go out there and execute plays and not try to do too much.”
