LOS ANGELES — USC Trojan quarterback Caleb Williams completed 10 of 12 passes for 98 yards and two touchdowns during last Saturday’s Spring practice, showcasing his exceptional talent and providing hope to the Trojan fanbase.
Williams, the Oklahoma transfer, dazzled the record crowd of 33,427 with savant-like mastery of head coach Lincoln Riley’s offense.
“[It was] awesome,” said Riley after the spring game at Coliseum.
Williams threw two touchdown passes to Mario Williams, who transferred from Oklahoma like his quarterback and head coach.
The Trojan offense flashed as redshirt Freshman Miller Moss contributed to the scoring prowess as he connected with Kyle Ford on a 48-yard bomb and running back Austin Ford scored on a 6-yard scamper.
USC looks to reclaim the Pac-12 title, and the Trojan offense flashed in their first opportunity to round into form.
“If you’re in the city and don’t feel the momentum about this program, you’re not paying attention,” said Riley.
However, if the Men of Troy are to succeed this season, Riley, Williams, and the rest of the offense will lead the way. Last Saturday’s performance was imbued with fireworks and elan.
