Early in it was mostly drills, but Travis Cotton got a rare carry in the running drills and actually picked up a few yards around the right end.
The 7-on-7's were unimpressive, but the 11-on-11 drills proved to be very interesting. Early on the defensive line was utterly dominant. Wildcat passers had little time to pass and Wildcat DB's were able to deflect a few passes.
The Cats concluded practice with redzone work and the offense got the best of the defense.
Syndric Steptoe made a real nice grab after a deflection and scored a few plays later when the Cats used a bit of misdirection to free him up for an easy catch from Tuitama. In fact the Cats scored a few times on some trickery, but in the interest of not revealing too much I won't give away the plays.
Chris Jennings got into the endzone with another impressive run. He hit the hole hard and was virtually untouched.
B.J. Dennard and Reese each had highlight reel catches. Dennard struck first. Despite being perfectly covered by Ross, Austin put a pass just high enough that Dennard was able to grab it despite Ross being as close to him as one can be without being flagged for interference. Dennard landed hard and appeared to have the wind knocked out of him but had little chance to recover because both Austin and Tuitama raced over the congratulate him for the impressive catch.
Heavner finished off the scoring with a naked bootleg. Thanks to a great ball fake, he was able to waltz into the endzone without a defender within 10 yards.
*The Cats will scrimmage Saturday night at 6:00 but will hold a meet the team at 5:00. Doors are scheduled to open at 4:30 but last year they let folks in a tad early when many players were on hand prior to the announced time.
