Fall Practice Notes & Pics for 08-10-10



The football team took to the practice field for their second day of half pads today, and while it was delayed thirty minutes due to a passing shower, they experienced nothing more than a slight drizzle here and there during the session.

Schnellenberger was pleased with the effort and play.

“We dodged a very brief shower that made our fields too wet, and made a chance of cutting them up too bad”, Schnellenberger said. “Great to get the day in and thought we had some really spirited work – between the lines particularly. And we’re learning, and getting better each day.”

The day saw many plays on both sides of the ball.

A much better performance was observed from TE Rob Housler, who made a couple of nice catches including a 35 yard TD strike from Jeff VanCamp.

Tavious Polo, who was supposed to provide the pass coverage, was immediately pulled by Van Valkenburgh.

LB David Hinds nearly picked off a Graham Wilbert pass, however Marcus Bartels (celebration photo above) finished the deal, nabbing another of Wilbert’s tosses and earning the praise of fellow team mates.

VanCamp had some off moments as well though with a few balls getting away from him that were nearly picked off. That drew some intense words of encouragement from OC Darryl Jackson.

Alfred Morris looked strong with a number of nice runs, but one in the latter part of the practice in particular.

WR DeAndre Richardson saw time today with the first team on a number of sets.


Injury updates:

FB Xavier Stinson was on the sidelines but did not participate.  No boot, and is still listed as day to day.

C Jordan Sessa had his MRI conducted and FAU should receive the reading results tomorrow.

C Jimmie Colley was carted off with what FAU has said is a knee strain. It is unknown at this time if he will participate in tomorrow’s practice.


FAU will hit the field again tomorrow for their first fully padded workout at 3:30 p.m.
