Camp Amato: Wolfpack Picks Up The Pace

RALEIGH, NC -- Listen to some of what head coach Chuck Amato had to say after this evening's practice.

Chuck Amato (10:07)

"I thought the tempo of practice was much better today then it's been."

"Offensively, we've got to start catching the football. We're dropping too many passes. If that continues, then that will answer you question about what we're going to do with those running backs... because we're gonna put the wishbone in. If we can't catch the ball we've got to do something."

"[Jay Davis] has not skipped a beat... he really hasn't. The seniors haven't skipped a beat either. They've done a really good job of pushing everybody."

"Marcus [Stone] is a clear-cut #2. Marcus gets better everyday. On Tuesday night, I talked to Marc [Trestman] after practice, and I thought he threw the ball as good in drills and everything... everything was clicking for him."

"When you've got a program where you've got people of [Stone's] caliber being a second-stringer as a third-year player, I think you're program is where you want it. You've got people in front of them who are fourth-year juniors and fifth-year seniors."

"All four [safeties] are flying around because they are fighting for a starting job."

"John Amanchukwu, we moved him back to defense. He's a big kid, he's about 285 or 290 pounds, and he runs really fast. So we moved him back over there."

"Tramain Hall has probably had as good a camp as he has had since he's been here."
