Green Wave Gets First Work In Shoulder Pads
"For the first day in shoulder pads, I saw a lot of competition," said Head Coach Chris Scelfo. "We worked against each other for the first time and we changed up the practice routine. We took another step and Monday will be another when we go in full pads for the first time."
While Scelfo thought both sides of the ball competed well Saturday and continues to be pleased with the talent level of his team, he also pointed out some of the mistakes.
"Our competition level was good," he said. "But we put the ball on the ground too much on offense. The defense started off strong, but then lost interest. It's obvious we've got some athletes on defense and that's encouraging."
A trio of freshmen earned Scelfo's praise after Saturday's workout, including Taurean Brown, a 6-6, 290-pound redshirt freshman defensive lineman from Katy, Texas and wide receiver Kenneth Guidroz, a true freshman from Port Sulphur, La., who were singled out for the second straight day.
"Taurean Brown had another good day as did Kenneth Guidroz," Scelfo said. "Both tight ends (Bobby Hoover, Jerome Landry) caught the ball well and blocked well. I saw some good things from (junior linebacker) Brandon Spincer and (freshman defensive lineman) Billy Harrison."
The Green Wave will work out Sunday afternoon in shoulder pads before going on the field in full pads Monday afternoon. Tulane opens the 2003 season on Labor Day night, Sept. 1 with an ESPN national television game versus defending Conference USA champion TCU in the Superdome. Tickets for that game, and for the season, are on sale in the Green Wave Athletics Ticket Office in the James Wilson Center or by calling 504-861-WAVE.
