Spring Practice Re-cap: Day 13

Yet again the Beavers were able to practice in sunshine and mid-70 degree temperatures on the grass practice fields at the Prothro Complex. After thirteen days of practice, the only thing that is as clear as the sky was that the team is making progress.

Taylor Kavanaugh was returning punts during today's practice. Kavanaugh has been impressive through much of spring drills, and may have his chances on special teams this season.

After the dominance of the defense at Saturday's scrimmage, Offensive Coordinator, Danny Langsdorf had to be pleased with the play of the offense, most notably, the play of the wide receivers and running backs.

At quarterback, Matt Moore continues to have the best command of the offense and looks very poised under center and in the pocket. Sean Canfield also had a very productive drive at the end of practice during the two-minute drills.

On defense, the linebacker trio of Joey LaRocque, Alan Darlin, and Derrick Doggett all made some great plays today playing with the first team.

The secondary continues to improve and today's defensive MVP should probably be awarded to Keenan Lewis who pulled in two interceptions and was all over the field making plays.

The squad will practice once more on Wednesday before wrapping up the spring campaign with the annual Spring Game on Saturday. Coach Riley announced today that they will run the scrimmage like a game with two teams. Due to the lack of depth at tight end, each squad will have one tight end. Stay tuned to BeaverBlitz for continued coverage of spring football as well as extensive wrap up next week.
