August 9th Practice Complete

In the first full-pad practice of the year, the weather finally cooperated.  In a very favorable weather-day, the Green Wave offense was on full display.

The practice consisted of a pair of the regular drills, including kickoff drills, a positional session, a middle drill, and a “score” drill.  The Green Wave offense also worked on some red-zone plays, from within the 20 yard-line.

Some highlights from today’s session:

-The offense was on display today, looking a little sharper than the defense
-The middle drill (a one-on-one blocking session where defense fights offense for supremacy) was very much controlled by the offensive side of the ball
-During the “score” drill, Albert Williams ran into the endzone after alluding defenders and celebrated with a flip, a scene that Parker Waters caught on camera
-Ryan Travis blocked a 38-yard FG attempt off the foot of Ryan Rome
-In the red-zone drills, Kevin Moore and Alan Mitchell teamed up for a nice pitch and catch in the right corner of the endzone. Jamar Thomas also rushed for a 13-yard TD during the drill

The Green Wave are back at it tomorrow morning at 8:50 AM before two-a-days start Wednesday.
