Mean Green Complete Second Day of Practice

DENTON, Texas (8/7/07) The North Texas football squad completed its second full day of practice Tuesday with a two-hour workout at the North Texas Athletic Center.



          To begin practice, quarterback Nathan Tune saw action with both the first and second team offense.

          True freshman wide out, Sam Roberson recorded two touchdown receptions with Antoine Bush in coverage. Roberson, a 6-4 receiver from Somerville, out-jumped Bush in the corner of the endzone to pull down his first touchdown.

          Bush returned the favor later in the 11-on-11 drill when he picked off a Daniel Meager pass intended for Roberson.

          Latiff Nurudeen made a one-handed interception in one-on-one coverage drills.

          Working from the 30-yard line, Meager completed two consecutive passes to Brandon Jackson to get the Mean Green inside the five-yard line.

          Freshman QB, Giovanni Vizza instrumented a three-play drive capped off by an 11-yard touchdown pass to Marcus King.

          In a simulated two-minute drill, Meager ran a seven-play, 50-yard drive down to the 15-yard line. Meager was three-for-five on the drive.

          Running the same two-minute drill, Tune drove the ball down the field and hit Jackson on an out route for a nine-yard touchdown. Tune finished the drill four-for-five with the TD.
