Here’s video (above) of defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox after Thursday’s spring workout.
Spring practice is winding down. Today was the last day before Saturday’s spring game, which in essence will be a glorified practice consisting of several scrimmages and situational drills.
Still it was obvious the Huskies are a little tired of hitting each other. The battles between receivers and defensive backs were feisty today. In particular, senior cornerback Greg Ducre got into several verbal exchanges and heated confrontations with pass catchers. Often Ducre came out on the winning side.
Early in the day he robbed Marvin Hall of catch. Several plays later, Ducre was paired against Kasen Williams when he tipped the pass away thanks to tight coverage that upset the star sophomore receiver.
It was a day of near spectacular grabs for Williams. He leaped high to on the sideline to make a highlight catch, but the ball squirted free when he landed on the turf. Minutes later, he also made a spectacular one-hand grab near the sidelines again. This time, he landed out of bounds.
— Bishop Sankey looked exceptionally explosive today while displaying a burst through holes and around the corner.
— Didn’t see many plays by the tight ends. Granted they were rarely targeted and didn’t play a major role in the passing action today.
— Senior receiver Antavius Sims had a chance to make a really nice play on long pass from quarterback Jeff Lindquist, but didn’t manage to find the ball in traffic.
— Near the end of practice, quarterback Cyler Miles connected with Keith Smith for what looked like a 30-yard touchdown pass against defensive back Trevor Walker.
