On Wednesday the Jacks wrapped up their first full contact practice of the 2012 campaign, and their first two-a-day practice schedule as well. During the double day session the Lumberjacks focused on tempo and effort, as the first practice featured a team full contact session right at the beginning to get the competitive juices flowing early. Moreover, since both the morning and afternoon practices were inside the Skydome, they both featured loud music for the players. While the double day practice session can be grueling, the Lumberjacks showed great mental toughness while finishing the second practice with an extended conditioning period. Some players who stuck out during the two practices on Wednesday were tight end Dejzon Walker, offensive lineman Kyle Walker, cornerback Devin Willis, and safety Lucky Dozier.
While Thursday was a day off from practice for the Lumberjacks, it doesn’t mean they were not working hard. Thursday was filled with meetings and weight room workouts for the players. Today (Friday) the Jacks are back on the field for another double day practice session with the morning practice scheduled for helmets and shoulder pads at 10:30 AM and afternoon session featuring a full pads, full contact, scrimmage from 5:30-7:30 PM inside the Skydome. The scrimmage will be an opportunity for many players battling for depth chart positions to demonstrate their ability.
