The first team defense then came on and immediately shut down the second team offense. Frostee Rucker did a good job applying pressure to John David Booty and forcing a low thrown ball in the flat to Chris McFoy which fell incomplete. The final play of the drill, and of the practice, ended with Collin Ashton tipping away a pass attempt for Brad Walker.
Much of the practice today was spent with the first units going against the service teams as the coaches reviewed the game plan for the Bulldogs. The team seemed loose and focused, just another day at the office for the Trojans.
Following the warm-ups at the beginning of the day, the offense linemen usually head to the far field to begin their work. Today we saw Chilo Rachal and Brennan Carroll race from the warm-ups to the field with Chilo winning by several yards. To the left of those two, reserve OL John Lanza was beating head coach Pete Carroll in a race to the same field.
There will be two toy drives being held on Saturday at the Coliseum with drop off locations at the Peristyle entrance and at the corner of Menlo and Coliseum. Fans are being asked to bring an unwrapped toy which will be donated to needy kids.
