The Owls were in just shorts and helmets. They also had on new cleats according to DíJoun Smith. But the limited protection didnít stop things from getting physical. The young group of tight ends worked on blocking for at least two periods. Dustin Bowens is on the left, and a skinny Nate Terry is on the right.
Iím going to keep writing about Marquees Dudley-Gordon until someone tells me to stop. Partridge said this of MDGís development: ď[Itís] going to be really critical, because we play so many spread teams, so you can see us in whatever you want to call it, a 4-2-5 or nickel package. That nickel position becomes very important to us.Ē
When the Owls arenít in a nickel, they will be playing either Robert Relf or Freedom Whitfield at linebacker. Relf saw first-team action on Thursday, because Whitfield had class. The true sophomore is athletic and looks fully recovered from an ankle surgery that caused him to miss much of last season.
