SMU LB Kevin Pope Q&A

Spotlight: Wide Receivers

The receivers struggled with a lot of drops throughout practice. Although some of the throws were high from Davis and Krstich they were tipped up in the air for possible interceptions. Tipped passes finally caught up to the receivers when Malone tried to make a one handed catch on a pass from Davis that was tipped in the air for an interception. Halverson did have a good day of practice today and made a nice spin move along the sideline that had the defense even celebrating.
