Early spring practice impressions
First off, thanks for the response and my apologies for the belated reply. Here are top-of-the-head thoughts after more than one week of spring practice. Mark Cann gradually is separating himself at quarterback, followed by Brian Anderson and Jonathan Garner. Best wishes obviously are extended to Chris Smith; his scholarship remains intact, by the way. Back to football, Chubb Small has been impressive and Phillip Gamble’s move from safety to weak side linebacker is working well. Speed is noticeably upgraded on defense, while interesting position battles are developing at both offensive tackle spots. I’ve received several questions about tight end Lee Smith; the imposing 6-foot-6 athlete certainly is in the mix and should factor into game plans this season. Feel free to post questions or your impressions from watching practice.
