Before I get to the interesting stuff from yesterdays practice I have to let you know why I'm writing this recap now, instead of being at the current practice. Unfortunately I'm stuck in a seminar required by one of my classes, but fortunately for you they allow me to bring my laptop. So instead of boring myself with this seminar, I'm going to give you guys the write up from yesterdays practice.
- After a somewhat mellow day at practice on Monday, the team came back out on Tuesday with a passion, flying around making hits, making plays and being generally fired up. You can tell these kids are enjoying themselves and improving from it.
- Marcus Richmond, a little used redshirt senior RB had one incredible run around the right tackle that went for a TD, on the way to the endzone Richmond broke two tackles in the second string defenses secondary. But what was most impressive about the run was the perfectly executed blocking by the starting o-line. Containing the defensive end and eliminating back the blitzing play-side OLB. Without the great blocking up front Richmond goes nowhere on the play, as the call was run directly into a blitz.
- Sekope Kaufusi, the same redshirt freshman that scooped up the LaMichael James fumble on Saturday, had himself a good practice that included a stretch of plays where he was just absolutely on fire. On the first play he knifed into the backfield from the backside of the play and chased down the RB for a loss. The very next play he did the same thing, except this time on the play-side, which means he also had to shed a block to get there.
That's what caught my eye on Tuesday. Like usual, let me know what you'd like me to pay attention to on Thursday and I'll be sure to be on the lookout. Until then, have a good one.
