Juniors Dan McGwire and Patrick Rowe and senior John Wesselman continued to impress San Diego State football coaches in the Aztecs' third intrasquad scrimmage of the spring Friday at SDSU. McGwire, who completed 19 of 33 passes for 305 yards, has thrown for 953 yards on 59-of-95 passing in three scrimmages. Rowe had his third consecutive seven-catch afternoon, this for 192 yards including a 61-yard touchdown from McGwire. Wesselman's interception of a McGwire pass gave him four, at least one each scrimmage.

For all the good things quarterback Brad Platt did in his last scrimmage before his San Diego State debut, Coach Denny Stolz seemed to care most about the one play that almost went wrong. That was the pass Platt threw through the raised hands of a linebacker and into the outstretched arms of a wide receiver. The play was a completion according to the rules of football, but not according to the rules Stolz expects his quarterbacks to follow.

San Diego State quarterback Brad Platt did not report for the start of practice Thursday and is considering quitting the team, Aztecs coach Al Luginbill said. Platt would have entered the fall as the team's No. 2 quarterback behind Dan McGwire, a 6-foot-8 transfer from Iowa who won the starting job last spring. "I met with Brad for about an hour last night. That is the first indication I had that he was thinking about quitting," Luginbill said.
