Nick Mitchell and Luke Del Rio were the QB standouts in the mini scrimmage, with many successful passes to Victor Bolden, Chris Brown, and Storm Woods.
The players demonstrated speed, agility, and power throughout the practice.
And the players performed well for the most part amidst the cheers from the attendees.
But Gary Andersen made it clear after the session he expects marked improvement on both sides of the ball over the final six spring practices.
The quarterbacks began the session working on short passing drills as well as throwing at a net.
Del Rio preformed the best from this chair in the drill. Marcus McMaryion occasionally missed the net.
The team then moved into seven on seven drills with spot-on passes made by Del Rio and Mitchell.
McMaryion seemed to perform better here than in previous practices but still needs work. Coaches continue to talk about his technique with him throughout.
Running backs Brown and Woods made some nice grabs from various quarterbacks.
Both Beaver running backs looked rock solid over the entirety of the drill.
Wide receivers Bolden and Malik Gilmore also made some nice catches from Del Rio and Mitchell.
During the practice, Woods, Brown, Damien Haskins, Anthony Battaro, Marcus Greaves, Shane Wallen and Jaylynn Bailey all worked on catching, ball control, and grip strength with the use of a leverage chute.
Defensive members worked on their technique going against the padded dummies and offensive members.
The practice concluded with Anderson saying he was very impressed with the team’s level of effort and dedication on the field.
But that said, he was not “overly excited” about where the Beavs stand in some areas, though he didn’t define those areas. That was the point he said he expected significant improvement from both sides of the ball over the final six sessions.
