Armour with Two Interceptions

Carlos Armour recorded two interceptions in yesterday's scrimmage as he competes for a starting cornerback position.

Carlos Armour was also quite impressive on the edges.

At 6-foot-3, 195 pounds, Armour has great size and strength together with some great speed, but confidence in his knee will more than likely be the thing that he has to develop again after coming off of ACL surgery on his right knee last year.

Saturday's scrimmage was truly the most people he's played in front of since he's been at Miami and he made the most of it.

He had a nice interception on a slant pass midway through the scrimmage and during red zone drills, he intercepted Kyle Wright's fade pass attempt to Darnell Jenkins in the end zone.

Making a good read on the ball, he attacked the ball rather than waiting for it to come to him.

"Carlos had a couple of nice plays," Coker said. "Losing two corners we need to find what we have at corner."

Said Armour, "It started off a little rusty for me, but I kind of redeemed myself towards the end. Overall, I think I graded out. Coach was telling me what routes to watch and expect. I just played to my techniques and they were there for me. Great catch for me."

Armour also talked about the competition everyday in the defensive backfield, an area that will be wide open with Kelly Jennings and Marcus Maxey's graduation.

"The competition is good," Armour said. "It's always competitive everyday out here. You come and look for opportunities to improve and get better. You have to stay humble and stay hungry. Nothing is guaranteed. You have to stay focused, grind and compete every day."

The Hurricanes resume practice on Tuesday, but is closed to the public.
