Practice Recap- Thompson is Ready to Lead

The Gamecocks were back at it once again with just three days remaining until the season opener against Texas A&M. Take a look at what the offense had to say tonight.

Quarterbacks coach G.A. Mangus noted senior Dylan Thompson is ready to lead.

“He’s had a good camp,” said Mangus. “He’s excited and ready to go. Dylan knows it’s his game from start to finish.”

Thompson added to Mangus’ comment, noting on just how excited he was to be able to have the chance to play.

“I’m sure Texas A&M is the same way,” said Thompson.

“Just been going against each other for a month and see somebody else out there. That’s kind of what our mindset is.”

On another note, offensive line coach Shawn Elliott stated he has not yet made a decision if Cody Waldrop or Will Sport will be taking over right guard, following up Mike Matulis knee injury.

“They’ve both been working. Cody has been working at guard. Will has been working at center and guard.”

The Old Ball Coach made mention earlier in the week that Waldrop might be better suited for guard than center, something that would require some change, according to Elliott.

“The first change is it takes the responsibility of snapping the football. It gives him the opportunity of being more aggressive,” said Elliott. “Playing the center position, you have to understand both sides of it. You’ve got to be an intelligent guy to go out here and make the right calls.”

South Carolina will return to the practice fields on Tuesday at 4 p.m. and Coach Spurrier will follow up with his weekly “Carolina Calls” radio show on Tuesday night from Wild Wings Cafe in the Vista.
