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.

Two-minute drill

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:

Team 1

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

Team 2

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.

Also...

  • 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.
