John Bordano Q&A
Darrian Wright Q&A
Football Practice Notes:
— Darrion Richardson had a great pass break up, tipping the ball and then almost coming away with the pick.
— Jesse Montgomery is having a great camp. Looks good in coverage and is always in on tackles- working hard for his snaps.
— Wyatt had a nice pass breakup in the endzone to prevent a score.
— Bordano has looked solid this week with No . 1's and has proved himself as a reliable reserve.
— Johnathan Yenga continues his strong showing in camp- looks more than capable of holding his own inside.
— Hayden Greenbauer looks very good in coverage and is very vocal on the field. He isn't making it easy on Mason to pick his starting safeties.
— Darrion Richardson also looks good. So, it will be interesting to see who Mason picks to be the starter- may vary depending on opponent.
— Ajee Montes looks solid on the outside, has had a great camp so far. He showed off a little bit of his speed again today, coming back to swat a couple of balls away when he looked to be beat.
— Cameron Nwosu and Caleb Tuiasosop are coming along, probably not as quickly as we would have hoped, but they certainly look more comfortable in Mason's scheme. It can only be a matter of time before they move their way up in the LB rotation.
— Neal Burcham was rolling to his right and threw a beautiful pass on the run to 20.
— Matt Davis is still holding the ball too long.
— If the QB can get the ball anywhere near Stephen Nelson, he will catch it.
— Kevin Pope looked lightning quick making a catch out of the backfield- picked up about 30 yards after the catch.
— Shelby Walker laid out for a great catch over the middle.
— Davis had a good deep ball that would have gone for a long TD, but the receiver couldn't hold onto it.
— Deion Sanders Jr. is a very sneaky receiver, he always seems to get open over the middle.
— Burcham has been working on his back shoulder throw and it's showing. He connected with 88 along the sideline for a big gain.
— Burcham connected with Joseph for a long TD, it was a perfectly placed ball- only Joseph could get it.
— Ryheem Malone had a great one-handed grab in traffic for a TD. In fact, Malone made a couple of nice catches in the red zone.
— Chris Hipps and Jeremiah Gaines really seem to get better as the offense moved closer to the end zone. Out of the two, Gaines has been the most impressive all-around, but don't be surprised if Hipps and Gaines are targeted frequently in the red zone.
— Darius Joseph had a great catch in the middle of the end zone- left his feet and was surrounded by two defenders.
— Kevin Pope has been impressive all camp. Looks a lot faster than last year, but just as physical and explosive.
