Default COCKYTALK SPRING PRACTICE REPORT: (4/12/13) Practice #14

Spring Practice Number fourteen: (4/12/13)

Well guys, I have no idea how the hell this practice report is going to turn out
today. I’m just going to start typing and see how it looks when I finish. There
was a lot of funny things that made this practice sort of like a high school Gym
class. First off, there was a very stiff breeze blowing from North to South and
was almost without stop. It made the kicking practice really fun to watch in a
comedy routine sort of way. Second, the team was not wearing pads today so
it was going to be a light workout anyway. They only had helmets and jerseys
and shorts. Usually those are the shorter practice basically to stay loose and
work on fundamentals. Last but not least of all, it was one of those days when
the players decided it would be funny to exchange jerseys with team mates, or
grab unused Jersey’s from the locker room and screw with the fans and the
press. Most of them I was able to make out, like Bruce Ellington wearing
#84, Connor Mitch wearing #60, Dylan Thompson wearing #74, Brendon
Nosovitch wearing #50, Mason Zandi wearing #14, (I think) Shamier Jeffery
Was the guy wearing a black #17 Jersey, but who knows.

Anyway, I got there earlier than I usually do. I talked the boss into shutting down
a half hour early for the weekend, so I was able to watch the team go through
position drills and footwork. It was amusing watching the punters kick into the
wind. The ball would leave their foot like a missal, travel about 25 yards high in
the air, then stop and hang there for a second or two rotating, and then falling
almost straight down, or even moving slightly backwards while falling. It was
just as funny watching them kick with the wind to their backs, and watching the
guys fielding punts have to run like Damiere Byrd going after a Dylan Thompson
pass when the ball came off the foot of the punter and just keep going and going
and going ……

The entire practice was short and right after a few reps for the punters and FG
kickers, the team lined up for some impromptu plays from the 11 on 11. The first
drive lead by Connor Mitch (#60) moved the chains from the 20 down to the opposite
25 before the drive stalled out there. They lined up for a couple of reps of Kickoff
coverage, then spotted the ball at the 30, and let Brendon Nosovitch have the offense
for a few reps (wearing #50) he was unable to get the ball in the end zone as well,
and after a few reps of Punt and Punt return practice, they gave the ball to Perry
Orth for about 3 plays. They ended the practice with the field goal team “TRYING”
To kick a 35 yard field goal, but one attempt by Landon Ard went spinning
Sideways wide (assuming he miss hit that one) then he attempted a second that
was on line, but the ball hung up about 4 yards short of going over the crossbar
in the wind, and fell straight down no good. The entire team and coaching
staff were laughing their asses off. Finally Nick St Germain got an attempt from that
spot and must have caught a slight pause in the constant breeze and drilled one between
the uprights to end the practice.

Funny side note. The past 3 practices, I’ve watched Vic Hampton during punting
drills standing waiting for his reps to field the punts, and he does this funny little
dance that resembles the “ooga chaka” baby before the ball is kicked. At first I just
thought he was hamming it up for his team mates, because he and Bruce Ellington
are always doing stuff to get a few laughs out of the coaches and team mates
during practice, but he’s done it on all his reps for the past three practices, and now I’m
wondering if this is a pre-kick warmup type thing he’s doing. I kept waiting for one
of the coaches to tell him to chill, but apparently they’re cool with it. The fans
seem to like it too.

Well, That’s it for the Spring Reports this year. Once again, I’ve enjoyed watching
the guys prep for the season, and enjoyed watching the early development of our
early enrollees. The day is supposed to be beautiful for the Spring Game Tomorrow
so for all those of you going, enjoy and have a great time. Please post comments with
your views of the game here. Would enjoy reading your views and opinions of the
team during the game.
Thanks again for all your support and the kind words this spring. Can’t wait to get
back at it this August.

Later guys.

I think Hampton's little dance is fine until he drops one in a game and gives up a TD. Honestly, I'm more inclined to let Bruce handle punt returns as well as KO....he has much better hands, he's used to getting his hands on the ball, and I trust him more in game situations.
