BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Chatham has a lot of work to do before its football season opener at Barringer on Sept. 9. The mood, however, is optimistic.

That was the take of two senior captains, quarterback Timmy Adams and two-way tackle Graham LeMon after the Cougars took the field for a controlled scrimmage against Matawan, Bridgewater-Raritan and Gov. Livingston on Tuesday at Gov. Livingston.

"It's the first scrimmage so obviously coming out we're going to make some mistakes," Adams said. "When we get back out there in practice, we'll fix everything and come back out ready for the next scrimmage.

"It's great to get out there and hit someone else other than a teammate. I'm looking forward to the next one."

The highlight for Chatham on offense was a pass over the middle from Adams to Chris Francesco, who cut inside and bolted into the end zone against Matawan.

Senior tri-captain Pat Cosgrove had a very active scrimmage, fielding punts, running the offense from the quarterback position and making a tackle for a loss on defense.

"Lot of fun," LeMon said. "We have to execute on some more things, but we're looking good out there."

Chatham scrimmages next when it plays host to West Morris, 10 a.m. Friday at Cougar Field.
