Tuesday Football Practice Update

Today the Seminoles practiced in shells (helmets and shoulder pads) and finished up the final two periods with a short 11 on 11 scrimmage. Once again the defense dominated for the most part. However, the tight ends had another outstanding day for the offense. Chris Milton will fill us in on latest details from today's practice.


On the offensive side of the ball, the Seminole tight ends were outstanding. Donnie Carter caught two touchdown passes one from Chris Rix and the other from backup quarterback Wyatt Sexton. Starting tight end Paul Irons also chipped in for one score during skeleton drills.

Wide receiver Chauncey Stovall and running back Lorenzo Booker sported blue non-contact jersey's today as a precaution due to lack of depth of both respective positions caused by injuries.

Booker caught several passes out in the flat and on one play he left cornerback Jhermaine McAroy grabbing at air.

For the most part the defense once again got the better of the injury filled offense.

Defensive end Willie Jones and defensive tackle Travis Johnson were quite active in the backfield causing headaches for both quarterbacks.

Defensive end Chauncey Davis tipped a sure Rix touchdown pass and Ernie Sims also had a nice pass deflection in coverage.

Safety Pat Watkins had the hit of the day while recording two tackles for loss.

Sitting out practice today were Lorne Sam, Decody Fagg, Matt Heinz, Matt Meinrod and Roger Williams.

Linebacker Buster Davis returned to practice today after suffering a slight concussion on the last play of Saturday's scrimmage.

The team will return to practice on Thursday Afternoon and they will hold a full scrimmage on Saturday morning.
