Craig Bohl was fired-up for a short time.
The first-year Wyoming football coach was getting on his guys, who he thought were coming in late for stretching prior to Friday’s fifth practice of fall camp.
But offensive coordinator Brent Vigen informed Bohl that he was running 10 minutes early.
Bohl laughed about it, and then the Cowboys went about their business.
Friday marked the first practice in full pads. As it has for the last few days, UW began the practice working on special teams work. Today was punting.
Bohl said senior quarterback Sam Stratton would stay at that position, but be involved in other aspects of the offense. Stratton got a look at catching punts Friday. Here is some video of that, and some of the other guys fielding punts.
Redshirt junior cornerback Tyran Finley, senior receiver Jalen Claiborne and redshirt junior running back D.J. May also caught punts.
As for the punting itself, sophomore Ethan Wood had some good punts and some not-so-good ones. That has been the pattern with him early in camp.
Senior outside linebacker Mark Nzeocha and true freshman safety Chavez Pownell Jr.both blocked punts.
Sophomore long snapper Brendan Turelli took care of the snapping duties. However, he was not in full pads. This was only his second practice of camp so he has to get two more practices under his belt before he can get into full pads. Here is what Bohl had to say after Friday’s practice: http://youtu.be/NhvceU6I9fc Continue reading
