HOT COUGAR ACTION: Day One Of Spring Football Complete

Day one of spring football is in the books and we have the video(s) to prove it. The general consensus seems to be a lot of passes were thrown, some good things were done and there were some things that need to be worked on. Basically, exactly what you would expect from the first practice of spring.

Christian Caple has a few more details in his wrap up including early position changes.

Oertel is back at linebacker after being listed as a running back, a move Leach said was to Oertel's liking. Also moved to linebacker are Max Gama (listed as a safety), Jared Byers and Corey Laufasa (both listed as a fullbacks). Walk-on receiver Ryan Nungester was working with the defensive backs, as was Kyle Lappano, who is listed as a running back. Dylan Rabinowitz, listed as a tight end, was working with the defensive line.

Now onto the videos.
