Wednesday was a day for mental and fundamental work as the Cowboys practiced outside on the practice fields south of War Memorial Stadium in spiders (lighter shoulder pads), helmets and shorts.
The best news was there were no new injuries to report.
Here’s what fourth-year UW coach Craig Bohl said after practice.
UW did some punting work during the early portions of practice. Here is what Bohl had to say on how he thinks the entire special teams units have done so far in camp.
“I think our specialists are kicking the ball well, and the snaps are going well,” he said. “We’ve worked on our returns, punt blocks and those things extensively. But quite frankly, a lot of times you really never know until you get out against an opponent. I think weve got some good returners, but will know a little more during that game.”
My story for Thursday’s Wyoming Tribune Eagle and Laramie Boomerang, and online at wyosports.net, is on UW’s two starting safeties — juniors Andrew Wingard and Marcus Epps. We haven’t heard their names a ton during camp, but Bohl said: “There’s news, you just haven’t seen it. We’re really pleased with some of the things that they’re doing. We have to play better defensively this year. We have a lot of players back. (Players on defense) are playing better, faster, more aggressively and they’re communicating better. Those two are leading the way”
As for the daily NFL scout watch, scouts from the Baltimore Ravens, Miami Dolphins, Tennessee Titans and Seattle Seahawks were at Wednesday’s practice. For the week, scouts from eight different NFL teams have watched UW practice.
