Sunday was another scheduled double day practice for the Lumberjacks, however the morning practice was changed to a walk-through as a reward for the hard work the team has been demonstrating during camp. The evening practice was a half-pack (shell) affair with only helmets and shoulder pads. However, just because the practice was not full pads, does not mean the intensity was not there. The practice was a spirited and competitive one as it featured an emphasis on red zone offense and defense and included both 1 on 1 and team sessions emphasizing the red zone situations, with some special teams work mixed in. Offensive players who performed highly on Sunday were receivers Nick Cole and Austin Shanks and offensive lineman Matt Wilson. Defenses’ top performers included defensive tackle Marc Thompson, linebacker Craig Frum, and safety Lucky Dozier.
Monday is an off day from practice for the Jacks as they will be consumed with meetings and working out in the weight room. The Lumberjacks return to the field on Tuesday for another double day with the morning session starting at 10:30 AM and the evening practice starting at 6:00 PM. The evening practice will feature NAU’s Football Season Ticket Select A Seat event. For more information about this event, click here.
