It is possible, in my rush to get you, loyal readers, a quick post-practice update earlier that I could have missed a detail or two. I might have forgotten to mention the play by CB Greg Toler to get his hands on a Derek Anderson pass intended for TE Anthony Becht, a ball that popped into the air before S Adrian Wilson grabbed it for the interception before tumbling to the ground. Yep, I might have been better served to point out that defensive play I suppose — I think No. 9 would agree.
The defense has made its share of plays out there. I don’t want anyone getting the wrong idea (and methinks neither does A-Dub).
One other random thought from this week that I keep meaning to mention: When the practices are over, rookie nose tackle Dan Williams, whenever he is ready to head to the locker room, makes an effort to jog from the fields to the locker room doors. He’s not sprinting by any means, and, because the players have usually finished with a run, he is usually pretty gassed. But he doesn’t walk, and to me, it just strikes me as a little extra effort you like to see out of a rookie.
That’s about all for now. The building is just about deserted, it seems. The offices are closed tomorrow, the players are long gone and with Memorial Day Monday, work is the furthest thing from anyone’s minds. I plan on reacting the same (although I will probably post some new photos later today or tomorrow; what can I say, I love my job).
The No. 9 Adrian is wearing, by the way, is going to be retired by his high school in a couple of weeks and I will have the honor of chronicling that.
First I’ll chronicle the good defensive plays during OTAs, though. Assuming I don’t forget.
