Spotlight: Wide Receivers

The wide receivers had a good day of practice today. Two positives came out of this practice in they were getting in and out of their breaks a lot quicker and crisper. One other positive, other than 1 under thrown ball and drop by Shelby Walker, the receivers looked to be in a much better rhythm with both Burcham and Davis. Deion Sanders Jr. had a really good day of practice, was being targeted a lot during practice and pulling in a lot of balls.
