ULM wrapped up its final day of shells practice with solid performances on both sides of the ball. Tuesday will mark the Warhawk's first day of practice in full pads and coaches expect further improvement as the season opening game at Texas is a little more than four weeks away.
"We've just got into pads, so we are getting more contact," Head Coach Charlie Weatherbie said. "Tomorrow we get to go in full pads, which will be great, followed by our first two-a-day on Wednesday."
The new 3-3-5 continued to gain excitement as they were able to stuff the offense on several drives on the day. Leading the charge was linebacker Theo Smith and defensive back Darius Prelow. Both players excelled in their respective positions making several big plays.
ULM's offense exploded as long runs by running backs Rodney Lovett and Isaiah Newsome set the pace. Quarterback Trey Revell connected on several deep passes to tight end Alvin Jordan, as he continued to improve in his new starting role.
"I see one freshman that is really sticking out that we can expect to see some things from this year is Isaiah Newsome," Weatherbie said. "Defensively Robert Nelson, Chad Brown, and Kevin White are some really good players that we are excited about."
