Other newcomers to the camp afternoon session were Trojan verbal commits Aaron Corp and Michael Reardon from Orange Lutheran HS. Reardon got work at center on the offensive line (photo, with Corp at QB) and at both defensive end and defensive tackle. His first rep on the o-line at center was an impressive one as he physically handled his opponent. Corp looked solid throwing the ball but where he really impressed was during the 11 on 11 session with his running ability. There were a couple plays where Aaron had to scramble to make something happen and he did it well. His running ability has been well documented and we got a good chance to see that today.
At the end of the final lineman one on one sessions this afternoon the Trojan coaches called for the top o-lineman and the top d-lineman to come together for one last rep. James Wilson ran to the middle of the line and pointed to Sean Enesi to indicate that Enesi should be the player representing the o-line. Enesi was certainly deserving of the honor but it also showed the team spirit that Wilson displayed throughout his two days on Howard Jones and Brian Kennedy Field. Enesi ended up going against Everson Griffen, a tough assignment for any player, and Everson fought through a tough Enesi block attempt to get the "sack".
There were a few skill players who stood out today; D.J. Holt from Crespi took a few reps at running back and looked good while Reggie Dunn from Verbum Dei and Mike Avila from Seaside were the top two receivers. Mikhail Marinovich had his second solid day in a row.
