Jeff Tuel and Marquess Wilson
State worked out in helmets and shoulder pads for just over two hours on Rogers
Field Sunday afternoon.
The Cougars continued to work through a similar practice schedule as the first three, opening with individual position drills before working through some team segments and then moving on to 7-vs.-7 drills.
In 7-vs.-7, freshmen linebacker Jeremiah Allison made one of the best athletic plays so far in camp, leaping to make an interception has he was dropping back into coverage. On the west field, sophomore linebacker Chester Su'a closed out 7-vs.-7 with a pick that he took to the house.
Special teams followed 7-vs.-7 and the Cougars focused on punt coverage, shedding blocks and working on containing the punt returner.
During 11-vs.-11 at the end of the day, again both the offense and defense traded big plays. The defense came up with a couple interceptions and later made a couple stops in a red zone drill. The offense received a couple long runs from Teondray Caldwell, a long pass from Connor Halliday to freshman Gabe Marks for a score, a diving catch by freshman Brett Bartolone and a leaping catch by Ricky Galvin.
The intensity will pick up a little more tomorrow as the Cougars will go full pads for the first time in fall camp. Practice is set to begin at 2:45 p.m.
