Young Players Moving Up
Before we look at who seems to be making an impression, here's a brief general impression of Sunday morning's practice session. The offense played badly; fumbled snaps, fumbles, interceptions, overthrown passes, underthrown passes, dropped passes. Not that every play was bad, but there were far too many miscues, many involving execution failures by the quarterbacks.
Good efforts by Sean Lucas and Bruce Youmans resulted in three blocked field goals during special team drills. Two were off the foot of walk on sophomore kicker Michael Sager. Lucas blocked two of the field goals.
Two true freshmen, Troy Kropog and Michael Parenton, worked with the second offensive line Sunday. Kropog lined up at left tackle and Parenton moved up and over to right guard. The rest of the second offensive line was Derek Rogers at right tackle, Aryan Barto at center and Joe Mitchell at right guard.
True freshman Zack Viuf saw most of the action at fullback with the number one offense. Viuf enrolled in school last January and participated in spring practice after attending the Air Force Academy Prep School in 2002.
True freshman Avery Williams continues to impress. Williams worked extensively at one of the tackle spots with the number two defense.
At this point true freshman Frank Morton was working at the other tackle spot with the #2's.
The remainder of the number two defense during the full contact period were defensive ends Willie Christian (defensive end Michael Purcell is still limited and does not appear to be cleared to participate in full contact) and Taylor Bertin.
True freshmen defensive tackles Antonio Harris, Julian Lowe and Ryan Johnson also saw considerable action Sunday morning.
Ray Boudreaux was held out of action. Jovon Jackson, Adeboye Tuyo, and Matt Forte saw most of the action at running back.
Until this evening.
