Practice #2 (March 25)

Highlights of the Day

During 11-on-11 drills, Tim Byerly threaded the needle between two defenders to hit freshman receiver Harland Howell over the middle. In the same drill, sophomore defensive back Shaun Kagawa made an excellent break on a pass down the left sideline for an interception.

Quote of the Day

"Making plays is just a mindset, seeing the ball and getting it, running to the ball every change you get. That's the biggest thing Coach Roof preaches to us."

Practice #3 (March 27)

Highlights of the Day

During 7-on-7 drills, redshirt freshman safety Jalen Johnson intercepted a pass over the middle and returned for a pick-six. Later the same drill, Justin Thomas found Dennis Andrews, who made an acrobatic catch, up the seam for a long completion.

There were no post-practice interviews available.

Practice #4 (March 28)

Highlights of the Day

In Saturday's 100-play controlled scrimmage, the offense scored one touchdown (Matthew Jordan 1-yard run) and the defense returned a pick-6 (Zach Matthews). Harrison Butker also connected on a 27-yard field goal.

Quote of the Day

"In the third year of the system, we have guys who know it and know the details of it. The older players, you can see them help the younger players when they come off on the sideline telling them what they did wrong. That's the kind of culture you want to continue to develop. "
