NEW ORLEANS, La.–With eight short days between now and the
University football team’s season-opening game, the Green Wave enjoyed another solid day of practice Friday morning at the Westfeldt Facility.
The Green Wave worked hard during a two-plus hour, 18-period session in shots, helmets and shoulder pads. The practice was extremely intense and filled with several highlight-reel plays as well as solid execution of the fundamentals.

He never lost sight of the ball, however, and while almost planted on the seat of his pants, King reached up with one hand for the catch that drew cheers from both the offensive and defensive players alike.
