I didn’t attend morning practice, but tonight was a solid practice on the first two-a-day of the year. Mumme allowed the guys to go a little shorter tonight, and the defensive guys were given a welcome surprise when lightning cut short Packer Day by about nine minutes. It was good to see Simeon Neal (leading receiver in ’08) and Marcus Franklin (leading receiver in ’09) on the field for the first time. Both had been held out of practice for administrative issues, but are good to go and will go through the progression of helmets only, to half pads to full pads just like the rest of the players had to go through.
In many cases at training camp the defense always looks a step ahead of the offense.
And while Joe Lee Dunn, Barris Grant and Kendall Roberson’s defense is continuing to impress, the offense is beginning to come around as well. It’s exciting to see the progression each day as we look towards Sept. 4.
Remember that we will be broadcasting all football games with audio / video. On rare occasions last year we were unable to bring a game; we’ve worked on some plan B and plan C’s to ensure we have a solid Internet connection this year, so hopefully we’ll be able to bring you all 10 regular season games. I will send out an official press release at some point this week about our live audio / video coverage of McMurry events.
Tomorrow’s practice is at 2:30 p.m. before a two-a-day practice resumes Wednesday.
Spread the word about the blog, and here is tonight’s PRACTICE #7 GALLERY.
Stay tuned ...
