Practice No. 2 of spring football is complete for Nebraska. Since we recapped Monday’s practice with available photos and tweets, why not keep the tradition going? We won’t make any wild assumptions from what we see, unless it’s warranted and then all bets are off.
Anyway, let’s recap Day 2.
OK, this is kind of cheating. This video is obviously from the first practice, but it wasn’t shared until Wednesday morning so it’s going here. In what’s called “Bridge Walk | Bridge Talk,” tight ends coach Sean Beckton is seen walking from the The Landing outside the Nebraska weight room over to the Hawks Championship Center. He’s joined by junior tight end Jack Stoll, redshirt freshmen tight ends Katerian LeGrone and Bryson Krull, and freshman tight end Chris Hickman. Other players wander in and out of the frame as well.
“Preparing to win today, right Jack?” Beckton asks.
Stoll then acknowledges it’s the first day of the 2019 season (hence the belief that this was filmed Monday and not Wednesday), and then the group starts the journey down the bridge.
Beckton asks Stoll to lead a quick stretch for the group once on the practice field, followed by the group getting in their lines. They also discuss what drills will be run, how and when everyone will meet up, etc. You know, the usual practice talk.
The tight ends find sophomore tight end Austin Allen already on the practice field, proving his dedication is greater than everyone else’s. Wait, that’s a wild assumption. Disregard. The video ends with the group coming together, and all is well.
Anyway, these videos are great and it’s nice that the Huskers are putting them out. Can probably expect to see more as spring ball goes on, so it’ll be interesting to compare what each coach says to the group as they head into practice (obviously factoring in that they know a camera is following them on the journey).
Speaking of Beckton, he was apparently dropping Dimes (literally, because that’s the name of the ball) at practice. Is there a quarterback competition brewing after all?
Look, it’s the wide receivers. Specifically JD Spielman and Mike Williams. Also, you can use those as wallpapers if you want.
With spring ball in full swing, we have plenty of stories to go along with it. Miss any of them? Get caught up now.
