WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The Boilermakers wore full pads for the first time during fall camp on Wednesday. The team went through some high-energy tackling drills as well as two-minute offense to end the practice.
Rob Henry led his offense to a touchdown in the two minute drill while the defense was able to stop the next two units. Henry capped off the drive with a touchdown pass to Justin Sinz from outside the red zone. Kevin Pamphile and the offensive line did a nice job of protecting Henry, according to the fifth-year quarterback. Henry and Pamphile talked to the media following practice and that interview can be found below.
Defensively, head coach Darrell Hazell has been very impressed with the defensive line and thinks that the unit is the best on the team right now. Hazell, senior defensive end Greg Latta and defensive line coach Rubin Carter talked to the media on Wednesday and those interviews are also below.
The team returns to practice on Thursday with the first two-a-day of fall camp. The team will come out at 9:30 a.m. ET and workout for about an hour and a half before returning at 3:30 p.m. Fans are welcome to attend both sessions and spectate from the hill beyond the north end zones inside the complex, though video and photography are not permitted.
