But first things first. Since this past one was a short week, we did make our voluntary workouts a bit longer, so we could get all of our lifts and runs in.
And we decided to only throw once this past week so that it would give guys time to rest up and come get back ready to start skelly. (For those who might not know, skelly refers to skeleton drills, a 7-on-7 typically run without linemen.)
We have already set up a date where we are going to throw skelly against Eastern, just like we did last year.
And it is still in the works as to when but we will also throw skelly against Idaho -- I have talked with Idaho's QB and we will be throwing against them this sometime summer.
I think every football player looks forward to and thinks it is a really good thing anytime you can go up against someone besides your own teammates. It gives you a different look, and it helps you to stay sharp.
Fall camp is less than a month away. And our first game this year comes on August 30, and that's next month. The season is almost here.
The game on the schedule, the one that I am looking forward to the most, is the season opener against Oklahoma State in Qwest Field. The reasons are simple: Not only will it be my first collegiate start, but it will be played close to my hometown.
One thing I've noticed this summer is the leadership. The first teammate I think about when I hear the word "leadership" is Greg Trent.
Greg's a tremendous leader because he leads by example. It's easier to talk than to do but Greg, he works extremely hard on and off the field and that makes everyone around him want to do the same.
This is going to have to be a shorter entry, I've got class to go to but I'll talk a little about some of the Coug receivers in the next entry. Keep the questions coming on the CF.C message boards and I will continue to try and get to as many questions as best as I can. Thanks and GO COUGS!!!!!
