Tuesday’s practice was the first of the 2012 season in full-pads for the Lumberjacks. The practice, again inside the dome due to afternoon monsoon storms, featured some one-on-one drills between wide receivers and defensive backs and offensive and defensive linemen to get the tempo and enthusiasm of the practice up. The team sessions of the day were very competitive and focused on situational football and mostly red zone situations. The results of the first two team sessions were fairly balanced, however the offense eventually pulled away in the final team red zone periods. Stand outs today on the offensive side included receivers Jesse Bueno, Jesse Brantley, and Jeremy Dang. On the defensive side the defensive line continued to impress, especially Justin Jungblut and Zach McDonnell.
Wednesday is the Lumberjacks first two-a-day practice with the morning session in full pads beginning at 10:30 am and the afternoon session in shells (helmets and shoulder pads) starting at 5:00 pm.
