WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Full pads were worn for the first time this fall by the Purdue football team on Wednesday. The Boilermakers practiced in Ross-Ade Stadium for their first full contact practice of the year.
Head Coach Danny Hope thought that moving to the stadium would help the players' efforts and was very pleased with the team. After practice, Coach Hope spoke highly of all three phases of the team, the offense, defense, and special teams. Robert Gregory, Taylor Richards, and Cody Webster were just some of the players that Hope talked specifically about.
The Boilermakers will have their first two-a-day session on Thursday as the team will come out in shells in the morning before returning to full pads in the afternoon.
Boilermaker All-Access caught up with Coach Hope after practice and the full interview can be found below.
