Fall Practice Notes & Vid 08-07-10

First day of practice for the team today, and things went pretty well overall. After starting at about 3:40 p.m. they were chased off the field early at 5:50 p.m. by an approaching storm that had everyone thinking tornado when a small funnel cloud appeared to be forming adjacent to the Boca Raton water facility.

Some players stood around watching before being chased to the locker room by Defensive Backs Coach Dick Hopkins.

There were some good plays, and some not so good plays, as Coach notes below, which is to be expected with the cobwebs needing to be dusted after being off for the last few months.

The session was supposed to be helmets only, although some players did have on "shoulder cushions". "It's a training type thing", said SID Katrina McCormack.

The number ones for the lines and backers:

DE Kevin Cyrille
DE Jamere Johnson
DT Jimmy Jean
DT Dino Cox

OT Max Karrick
OT Andy Czuprynski
C Jordan Sessa
OG Erik Hansen
OG Samuel McCroy

MLB Michael Lockely
SLB Malik Eugene
WLB Alex Pattee

Wide receivers for the ones were Holley and Jean...Richardson ran with the two's primarily while newcomers Paul Moore and Jerrard Hunter got some time with both the two's and the three's.

And now a few words from Coach and a couple of well known seniors:




Rob Housler had a case of the dropsies today with a few catchable balls getting away from him.

Xavier Stinson was the only one to get a bit roughed with a right ankle tweak when tackled late in the session. Coach did not know the severity of the matter, but that is definitely not allowed yet - it would be a shame to have him out as he did make a couple of nice grabs out of the backfield today.

It is easy to see the difference the weight room has made for a lot of the guys. TE Darrian Williams said he has put on 10 pounds in the off-season and is now 230 lbs.

The team will be back on the field tomorrow at 3:30 p.m.

What did you think of JVC's new FAU camo-cap?

Pretty sweet!

;D

I'm sure it's only a matter of time before he tells the press that FAU's "fixin' to compete for the Belt title."

Some updates from yesterday…Stinson is sporting a boot today…no word from Coach yet on the severity of the ankle.

No more video for team drills (11-on-11)   :-\
