Practice Report - April 2

The Miami Hurricanes football team practiced for two hours Wednesday afternoon as the Hurricanes continued the third week of spring practice at Greentree Practice Field on the University of Miami campus.

The Hurricanes practiced in full pads on Wednesday, focusing on fundamentals and group play as both the offense and defense spent much of the session working amongst themselves. Special teams work was featured during the opening periods of practice, followed by fundamentals work among the separate position before some full team scrimmaging ended the practice session.

Wednesday's practice was the 10th of 15 sessions that will conclude on Friday, April 11. The Hurricanes will practice Thursday afternoon before taking Friday off.

The Hurricanes will host the Fox Sports Net CanesFest at the Orange Bowl this Saturday.
