Secondary Makes Plays In First Scrimmage

New, 3 comments

The Pack's quarterbacks completed two-thirds of their passes during Sunday's scrimmage but averaged a modest 5.4 yards per attempt and threw three interceptions, one of which was returned 77 yards for a touchdown.

TOB sounds at least mildly encouraged:

The secondary, which has been depleted by recent attrition, was a bright spot on Sunday as the group intercepted three passes and allowed just one touchdown reception. "A couple of kids made some plays today which is very positive for us. Especially Rashard Smith returning it for a touchdown so you know guys are fighting for jobs."

"At practice sometimes the coach is there and everything else so you aren't really sure if a guy understands what's going on so its always good when you go out there and guys do step up."

Something else to keep an eye on:

Josh Czajkowski's 2-for-5 day on field goals was a 'concern' to the coach, who said the place kicker has changed his mechanics. He compared it to a golfer changing his swing in that it might take some time to work everything out, but said he has been kicking well in practice and hopes that it doesn't remain and issue the rest of the camp.
