The Bruin football team has been in preseason camp now for a week and all the hard work put forth during the past week and in the offseason is beginning to pay dividends. Big plays were in abundance as the Bruins took to the field this afternoon for the lone practice of the day following yesterday, the first day of two-a-day practices.
Anthony Barr made perhaps one of the most impressive catches of fall camp thus far. Barr was running an outside route against Aaron Hester during 7 on 7 and essentially leaped over Aaron to snag a well thrown ball by QB Richard Brehaut. Jerry Rice Jr also had a nice TD catch in a redzone scenario, getting open just behind All-American safety Rahim Moore.
On defense, the secondary storyline did not deviate from the norm; its dominant performance was evident again with Moore making an impressive interception while the rest of the secondary continued to play at a fast paced level. This was particularly exemplified during the 2 minute drill at the end of practice where the defense intercepted two passes from the offense drive. The offense did finally prevail on a nice drive down field into field goal range where freshmen placekicker Kip Smith knocked one between the uprights to give the Bruins the victory.
Tomorrow will be another session of two a days with the morning practice starting at 9am and the afternoon practice beginning at 4pm in full pads. Both practices will be on Spaulding Field. As is the case with all Bruin football preseason camp practices, the public is welcome to come out and get a preview of the 2010 team!
