12. Tight Ends – Mike Matthews and Wayne Riles looked good catching the ball today.

13. QB - I guess I must catch Reggie Ball on his good days. He threw the ball with a lot of zip and accuracy today. He hit CJ on fly pattern for a TD and hit his secondary receivers with accuracy today. The one dropped pass that showed his accuracy today was a deep pass over the middle that went between two defenders only to have Chris Dunlap drop it.

14. The coaches had some of the seniors working with the freshman after practice today. One example of that was Matthews working with Barrick. [This appears to be another example of coaches sending an upperclassman over to help mentor the younger guys. Coach Tenuta did this once before by sending Kenny Scott over to help watch Laurence Marius on Saturday while Kenny was on the sidelines.]

15. K-Michael Hall looks like he may be the leader on defense. He's been vocal and working with the other defensive players encouraging them throughout the practice.
