Friday's Practice Report & Photo Gallery

During Friday's practice the players wore shoulder pads and shorts and the hitting was light in preparation for tomorrow's scrimmage. However there were some interesting developments, QB/WR Carlton Hill practiced primarily with the receivers today. Read the rest of our observations and take a look at the photo gallery, which includes Hill going through wide-out drills.

Friday morning started off as hot as any day so far but that did not slow Coach Leavitt and company. They went through their normal fundamental drill and then did some extra running before the morning stretch. After the stretch each unit broke off to go through individual drills.

Today Carlton Hill did not go with the quarterbacks for individual drills, he went with the receivers. As you can see in the picture Hill still wore the yellow QB jersey. It has always been assumed that Hill would see the field in some capacity, now it looks like it will be as a receiver. I would not count him out of the QB competition, however, with his athleticism the coaches don't want to waste him as a backup this year. It is too early to tell if this will become his primary position, but I'll continue to keep an eye on it.

At one point while going through the feet drill with the ropes Hill had a hard time picking up the right technique. Coach Dawsey told him, "come on, you have to be smooth to be a receiver."

Hill struggled a couple more times but the other guys came in to show him what to do. They also joked with him and told him not to worry, and "You'll pick it up soon enough."

Here is today's photo gallery:
