The University of Louisville wrapped up their sixth practice of fall camp Thursday morning.

The Cardinals again were in full pads on the first two-a-day practices. They'll return to field this afternoon at 4 PM.

Here are the highlights from Thursday mornings practice.

  • Corner Rod Council, a redshirt freshman from Charlotte, NC, was outstanding again this morning. He broke up no less than three Brian Brohm passes during 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 drills. If this guy isn't the starter on day one I'll be shocked.

  • Brohm seemed less than sharp Thursday morning but did make several nice throws, including a 60 yards touchdown pass to Montrell Jones. Jones beat Bobby Buchanan on a post route.

  • Quarterback Hunter Cantwell threw a thirty yard rope between two defenders that connected with receiver Jason Horton during 7-on-7 passing drills.

  • Malik Jackson was outstanding during the morning session. He was everywhere on the field, and made two tackles during one defensive series. The first tackle was a bone-crushing hit along the sideline of Michael Bush that drew ooh's and ahh's. Jackson is one of the faster linebackers and hits hards at the point of contact.

  • True freshman defensive linemen Earl Heyman and Jonathan Holston saw action with the first unit during one defensive series. Heyman made a nice pursuit tackle during his action with the one's.

  • Wide Receiver Harry Douglas returned to practice for the first time since camp opened last Saturday.

  • Freshman WR Scott Long continues to improve and showed excellent hands and concentration when he caught a deflected pass in the end zone for a touchdown towards the end of the morning practice.

  • Though he's listed at 6-4, 267, Zach Anderson might have the quickest feet of any defensive lineman on the team. Anderson is currently getting reps at defensive end with the second team defense.

  • Travis Norton and Elijah Daniel had a spirited exchange during practice. For their spirit, both players were treated to several minutes worth of sit ups and up downs.
