Canes Camp Day Six: Bring On The Two-A-Days

Thursday was the first two-a-day practice for the 'Canes football team, and their first full of week of camp is almost over.

Thursday was the first two-a-day practice for the UM football team and there were some new guys wearing the red jersey, but one of the freshman was finally seen wearing his green jersey.

Here are some more camp updates:

  • The 'Canes practiced with full pads during part one of their two-a-day and that was followed by a helmets and tops practice held in the afternoon. Coach Golden was asked about two-a-days and he said, "We'll be shells in the afternoon. To be honest, the kids like it. I hate to say it, but the kids end up liking it more than just one practice."
  • Deon Bush was still sporting the red jersey, but he wasn't accompanied by Anthony Chickillo and Corn Elder today. Elder was back in his green jersey, while Chickillo went back to his black jersey. Malcolm Bunche and David Perry were the other two players who were wearing the red jersey along with Bush.
  • During the first 11-on-11 drill, Touchdowns from Duke Johnson, Phillip Dorsett and Dallas Crawford highlighted the drill. While the defense dominated the second 11-on-11 with Luther Robinson notching up a sack and the squad also forced two fumbles, one of them being by Alex Figueroa on a Ryan Williams run.
  • Al Golden was asked about Pat O'Donell this morning: "I think he's going to help us by changing the field. He's very poised .. and for his age, he's very experienced. He's been through a lot."
  • Art Kehoe (he's the best) was asked on what change he sees in Seantrel Henderson and he said "We've got a train on our chest that's going uphill and we talk about it all the time. Get in the train, lean forward .. if your foot is out we're going to axe it off. We're a team and we're all doing this together and Seantrel is a park of it." I don't know if much or any of the question was answered, but Art Kehoe, everyone.
  • Shane McDermott on how great the offense could be: "With the offense, we know that we can be a very good offense. We aren't thinking about the end of the season, all we're thinking about is getting better every day and getting ready for FAU." He also added, "we can be a great offense and we all work towards trying to become a great offense. We're just focusing day by day right now."
The Canes take the field tomorrow a little bit later due to the two practices on Thursday. We'll get a tour of the new Schwartz center Friday morning and we'll have some cool stuff for you guys here at SOTU.

P.S. Art Kehoe really is the best.
