The Arizona State Sun Devils opened up their second week of training camp Monday at the Verde Dickey Dome in Tempe.
The media viewed opening stretches, individual drills, two series of two-minute drills, Oklahoma drills, and special teams drills before being removed. Players wore shells (just helmets and shorts).
Summer Dirty Dozen
Twelve players were honored for their outstanding work over the summer: tight end Kody Kohl, defensive back Gump Hayes, receiver Ellis Jefferson, linebackers Malik Lawal, Carlos Mendoza and Christian Sam, left guard Sam Jones, defensive ends JoJo Wicker, Renell Wren and Jalen Bates, running back Kalen Ballage, and quarterback Bryce Perkins.
Skirmish during Oklahoma drills
Things became intense when several offensive and defensive linemen took part in a shoving match during the Oklahoma drill portion of the practice. No punches were thrown, however.
Redshirt senior offensive lineman Evan Goodman was at the center of it.
After Brady White directed the first team during Saturday’s two-minute drill session, Monday it was Manny Wilkins who headed the first unit under center. White took snaps with the second team, as both groups worked through ASU’s two-minute offense facing no defense.
Here’s how the offenses lined up:
QB: Manny Wilkins
RB: Kalen Ballage
WR (outside): Ellis Jefferson, Jalen Harvey
WR (slot): Tim White
TE (slot): Kody Kohl, Raymond Epps
LT: Evan Goodman
LG: Sam Jones
C: Stephon McCray
RG: Zach Robertson
RT: Quinn Bailey
QB: Brady White
RB: Nick Ralston
WR (outside): N’Keal Harry, Cameron Smith
WR (slot): Frederick Gammage
TE (slot): Raymond Epps
LT: Mason Walter
LG: Connor Humphreys
C: Cohl Cabral
RG: Cade Cote
RT: Steven Miller
Notes: Running back Demario Richard is not injured; he did not take part in any of the two-minute drill reps, just as Ballage did during Saturday’s practice.
- An Atlanta Falcons scout attended Monday’s practice.
- Tim White once again sported the coveted, camouflage PT42 jersey, and is the only player to do so.
- Media caught a glimpse of one 11-on-11 play before being removed. It appeared the team is still experimenting with sophomore JoJo Wicker at Devilbacker with Edmond Boateng manning the defensive end role.
The Sun Devils will practice again tomorrow as fall practices continue.
