The Presbyterian College football team wrapped up its sixth and seventh practices, respectfully, Monday evening close to 9 p.m. The Blue Hose went through workouts Monday morning in practice No. 6 in shorts, pads and helmets before returning to the gridiron Monday evening for a full pads practice.
“Overall it has been a success since we’ve been in full pads,” head coach Harold Nichols said. “There have been a few bumps and bruises along the way, but that’s just part of the game. We are working a lot of guys and they are getting a lot of repetitions. “Offensively, we threw and caught the ball well,” Nichols continued. “Myron did a nice job and Brandon had a good practice. Our receivers are playing better, which bodes well for our team.
“Defensively, Derek Brown continued to be a leader,” Nichols said. “Greg Palmer showed up tonight and did a nice job. We need to focus on eliminating our turnovers and becoming a better tackling team. Tonight we continued working on our kicking game. “Overall, I am pleased with the way we’ve performed,” Nichols commented. “We are in the preseason grind, but it is helping us prepare to play the upcoming season.”
