The West Has A Short Afternoon Practice

SAN ANTONIO - The West came out in helmets and shells for its second practice at the Alamo Dome, Wednesday afternoon, in preparation for the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. The team did a little seven-on-seven, moved to goal-line situations, before really focusing on special teams.

It was the same old song, but probably sounds like music to your ears. Jimmy Clausen didn't throw too many passes, but all of them were on point during seven-on-seven drills. The Notre Dame commit looks much better than Michigan commit Ryan Mallett and Miami commit Nick Fanuzi.

Irish recruit Michael Williams moved well into the box on goal-line defense. He made one nice play where he sought out the hole and took out Joe McKnight's legs as he tried to come through.

McKnight eventually left practice early after having his foot examined. He did not return.

Williams was back as one of the kickoff returners. He was also the deep guy on the hands team.

Matt Romine lined up at tackle on the field goal unit.
