Today, Head Coach Bob Toledo rewarded the Green Wave with a “fun” day, as the team as a break from the daily grind of fall camp practice. After a morning practice that was cut short due to rain, the squad moved to the swimming pool and relaxed. After the rain subsided, the team went back out on the practice fields and participated in some “drills”, which entailed both the offensive and defensive lineman fielding punts (which for sure provided some comedy).
Practice concluded with the team enjoying some cold popsicles on a very humid day.
The Green Wave wrap up fall camp tomorrow with a scrimmage at the Westfeldt Practice Facility beginning at 3:20 PM in the afternoon. The scrimmage is open to the public.
After another hot and productive practice yesterday, the Green Wave have this year’s first taste of two-a-days.
Today’s first practice will commence at 8:50 AM and the second will begin around the 3:00 PM this afternoon at the Westfeldt practice facility on Tulane University campus.
The players seems to excited about the first two-a-days of fall camp, as Ryan Travis tweeted this morning:
First day of two a days…I’ll just look at it as a 2 for one..2 chances 2 get better in 1 day!
A couple highlights from yesterday’s practice:
-The offensive line continues to build up higher expectations, as they have looked extremely impressive so far throughout camp and their conditioning was on full display yesterday. It looks like QB Ryan Griffin will have time to deliver the football this year, which is a fantastic luxury.
-CB Phillip Davis had another great day on the defensive side of the ball, including a nice hit on WR Joe Kemp that forced a fumble
-Freshman RB Orleans Darkwa continues to have a great camp, as he is making a push for some touches in his rookie year with the Green Wave
We will continue to provide updates throughout the day.
