The Evening Post: Recap of Saturday’s night practice

First I want to apologize for not posting the five videos I promised yall earlier today. The internet connection was awful today and struggled all day but just could not get the videos posted. I finally managed to get Hundley’s interview from this morning so I’ve posted at the bottomg. Hopefully tomorrow and the next five days from San Bernardino go a little more smoothly …

*The second of two practices Saturday night got pushed from 5 to 6 p.m., meanning there was a real possibility that practice would go well after the sun set. It did. The final 15 to 20 minutes were difficult for players, coaches and media alike which had a real difficulty spotting players and jersey numbers. Just so you know, Sunday’ spractice was moved from 11:45 a.m. to 4 p.m.

**For the first time in arguably all of camp, just about the entire team shined during the evening pratice. But let’s not forget that the team only went with helmets and shoulder pads. Still, it was good to see the players carry on practice with more energy. Was it the overcast evening allowing for cooler temperatures that changed the mood? Perhaps, but it certainly was a welcomed change. You know who didn’t have the best practice this evening? Brett Hundley. The newly annointed starting quarterback threw four interceptions thanks to a pesky secondary as Demetrice Martin’s troops recorded three of the night’s five interceptions. Tevin McDonald intercepted Brett Hundley twice in 11-on-11s and true freshman Taylor Lagace had two very nice pass breakups along with an interception off of Kevin Prince in 7-on-7s. Keenan Graham and Ryan Hofmeister intercepted Hundley, the former the end result after Sheldon Price’s virtual sack. Devin Lucien had a good showing as well making two spectacular catches. He lunged his body in mid air and landed sideways but with the ball in hands. Later he went high upstairs falling back and making a one-handed catch. The matchup of the evening had to be Aaron Hester and Jerry Johnson. That was fun. The two went at it and Hester was as vocal as ever getting his mates fired up.

***Datone Jones got into another scuffle, this time with Brett Downey, who was livid after Jones pushed him well after a play was over. It was broken up pretty quickly.

    Don’t worry about the videos. Do try and post them again whenever the internet gets better though, we’d still like to see them :)

    Said it before since his first interview: it’s just easy to cheer for Brett Hundley. He’s intelligent, well-spoken and answers so earnestly. Just plain LIKABLE. Right up there with Xavier Sua’Filo. Looking forward to the start of the season…

    Now… Please, get us some wins this year.

    Go Bruins!
