Camp News and Notes
• A mid-afternoon thunder shower turned the conditions for Day Two of camp into a hot and humid affair. The team took numerous water breaks throughout the session to keep hydrated.
• Sophomore cornerback Ricardo Allen turned in an impressive effort on the second day. Among his standout plays were a block on a field goal attempt, a diving interception in the team drill and numerous PBUs in 1 v. 1, skelly and team. He also narrowly missed a pick-six in skelly.
• In 1 v. 1, Robert Marve hooked up with Justin Siller on what looked to be about a 30-yard pass and catch, T.J. Barbarette made a nice sideline grab on a pass from Austin Parker and Caleb TerBush connected on a 40-yard touchdown pass with Antavian Edison.
• In skelly, Rob Henry hooked up with Edison on a 45-yard touchdown pass on the first play of the drill, Allen posted at least of pair of PBUs and Kurt Lichtenberg made a nice diving catch on a 15-yard pass from Henry.
• Along with Allen pick, highlights from the team drill at the end of practice were a couple of nice "tackles" (the players remained in shorts and practice jerseys) by Will Lucas, a forced fumble by Kawann Short, a couple of nice rushes by both Ralph Bolden and Akeem Shavers, a 20-yard reception by Siller from TerBush, a leaping grab by O.J. Ross for a first down and a PBU by Kevin Pamphile on the final play of the drill.
• The team will return to practice Monday afternoon. The players will be in shells and will practice at "Thud Tempo".
