The Nebraska football team practiced for approximately two and a half hours on Monday morning in helmets and full pads at the Hawks Championship Center.
Head Coach Scott Frost and Offensive Coordinator Troy Walters addressed the media following the conclusion of practice.
Coach Frost was first, talking about how the first few weeks of spring practice has gone.
“I thought the first week went really well, I wasn’t as happy with today. Maybe springing the clocks forward got them or something I don’t know, but the energy wasn’t what I wanted today. That being said, we’re way ahead of where we were last spring in the first three days, so a good start.”
“Last year it was teaching guys where to go between drills, what to do, signals, alignments, assignments. With the ones and twos we are way ahead this year. Threes are still learning, some of the new guys, some of the walkons from last year, but as a whole everything just function betters and when you know what you’re doing, you have a better chance at getting the repetition you need to get good at it.”
He also touched on how impressed he is with the defense in their first practice with full pads.
“I think the whole defense looks better. I’m really impressed with the way the defensive line is striking and moving around. There’s some guys in the secondary that I think are doing a good job. Seeing Jojo Doman make a bunch of plays. It’s hard to pick just a few guys out, but i think as a whole, that unit, again, once you know what you’re doing, you have an opportunity to do it faster and with more confidence and I’m kind of seeing that from everyone on that side.
He closed with talking about his tight ends and how he wants to them to improve to allow the field to become more spread out.
