Saturday saw the first two-a-day for camp and our first live full contact scrimmage. The morning was an 18 period half pads practice which begun with a field goal period. Following the morning practice was lunch and then a quick turn around to the afternoon practice. The afternoon was a full padded practice that was 12 periods of drills followed by a 12 period live scrimmage. Plenty of good plays were made on both sides of the ball as well on the punt unit that was the only special teams unit involved in the scrimmage. Offensively Branden Oliver #32 and Brandon Murie #11 both had solid production at running back. Defensively Khalil Mack #46 and Steve Means #40 both got into the backfield. Whilst the defensive did force a few three and outs the offense didn’t turn the ball over once.
We were given Saturday evening off to relax in the hotel before our first off day of camp on Sunday, although treatment and film review will still take place, giving players a chance to get better mentally whilst resting physically.
