Running around in 94 degrees does not sound fun. Running around when it feels like 108 degrees, sounds worse.
Running around when it feels like 108 degrees on turf, sounds miserable.
The Green Wave participated in their first official practice of the season today in weather sporting a 108 degree heat index. The players were extremely excited to participate in their first practice of the year and get it out of the way.
Unfortunately I was not in attendance and will not be able to attend a practice for the next 10 days or so, however Times-Picayune beat writer Tammy Nunez was braving out the heat, and here were some of her tweets from today’s action:
Tweet #1: tammynunez It’s halftime of 1st #tulane practice and mr. Griffin has worked some throwing mechanics. Result: 2 ryan grant td’s
Tweet #2: tammynunez first #tulane practice is over and here’s quick hits: griffin=impressive, robottom=solid, davis and lauricella=interceptions, good start
Nunez was impressed with the work of Ryan Griffin. That’s awesome news – he will need to be the leader on offense this upcoming year.
And also everyone must keep an eye on Ryan Grant. He’s one of a handful of players to watch for this upcoming season.
Video will be uploaded shortly.
