11-on-11 Rundown

Media was only allowed to see the first team’s drive of 11-on-11 and nothing eventful went on, which is a step in a positive direction. Kalen Ballage carried the ball and Manny Wilkins was 1-for-2 through the air, overthrowing John Humphrey in the end zone on the final play of the drive.

Special Teams: John Humphrey, Ryan Newsome and Jacom Brimhall alternated catching punts from Michael Sleep-Dalton. The punter only practiced straight on kicks, as opposed to rugby-style which we could see eventually.
