From Furman sports information:
Furman head coach Bobby Lamb walked off the practice field Monday unhappy with the overall performance of his squad as it entered week three of the preseason.
“That was not one of our better practices,” said Lamb following the two and a half hour session. “The tempo was good, but our execution, particularly on offense was not good. We had way too many mistakes and fumbles.”
Monday’s session, the first for the squad after two off days, included more seven on seven sessions and live punt and field goal team work.
One of the few bright spots, according to Lamb, was the continued consistent work of senior placekicker Matthew Cesari.
“Matthew continues to make all his kicks and has improved his range. He looks very solid out to 40 yards.”
Cesari led Furman in scoring in 2008, converting 9-of-12 field goals and 37-of-38 PATs.
The Paladins also conducted more down and distance work and focused on two-minute offense, as well as last second, Big Ben plays.
