SOUTH BEND, Ind – Players shine in the blue-gold game, but transfer Sam Hartman puts on a show going 13-16 for team gold.
We finally got to see the boys in action and team gold left team blue scoreless, 24-0.
But let’s be honest, the one person everyone wanted to see today was Sam Hartman.
The Wake Forest transfer came out the gate on fire, throwing for 189 yards and two touchdowns.
It’s still early but Hartman just might be everything Notre Dame is looking for.
Not only did Hartman look poised in the pocket, make great reads, and throw receivers open, he did it efficiently going 13-16. Including a 46-yard bomb to Jayden Thomas.
“It's good to see Sam play well, in his first real game like experience at Notre Dame Stadium.
Sam Hartman showed today why he was extremely successful at Wake Forest and I think will be extremely, extremely successful here,” said Head Coach Marcus Freeman.
Buchner on the other hand, not so much.
The junior representing team blue went 8-18 – only 44 yards and was sacked twice with an interception.
Even with a less than impressive stat line. Freeman’s not letting Buchner take all the blame.
“I think we still have quarterback battle you know and what you can't determine a winner and loser based off one practice. Practice 15,” Freeman added.
But he’s not taking away from Hartman and how could you?
The transfer had a unbelievable connection with Jayden Thomas and freshman receiver Jaden Greathouse, who ultimately stole the show with 11 receptions and 118 yards.
“The balls just kept coming to me and I just kept trying to stay disciplined and trying to do what I’m supposed to do and, you know, they just kept coming my way. So, I’ll never complain about that. But, you know, it's all thanks to the court quarterbacks, you know, given me the ball in the first place,” Greathouse said.
Freeman himself, shocked by the freshman’s stat line.
“I didn't even know that 11 from 118 is pretty good stat line he stuck out he played? Well, I mean, he played really well. It's good to see Jaden step up today. Like I said, when the lights are on, you want to see who will step up and make plays,” Freeman added.
