Mean Green Hits Mid-Week In Stride During Wednesday's Practice

DENTON, Texas (8/8/07) Just two days shy of moving into full pads, the North Texas football squad was itching to get into full contact drills. The Mean Green finished its third day of fall practice with a two and a half hour workout in shoulder pads and shorts at the North Texas Athletic Center.



         During the 2007 season, the Mean Green will see its third different t kicker in as many years. Trent Deans, Thomas Moreland, and Clayton Teasdale are all battling for the starting spot. All three are walk-on freshman.

         Lawrence Wesley snuck by Kartey Agbottah after catching a pass from Giovanni Vizza on a curl pattern during one-on-one drills. Wesley sprinted by Agbottah into the back of the endzone.

         Craig Robertson stepped in front of Roderick Johnson to pick off a pass thrown by Daniel Meager.

         Senior back Jamario Thomas looked sharp in two-minute drills taking several handoffs and shooting the gaps for eight to 10 yard gains multiple times.

         Vizza hooked up with Casey Fitzgerald on a 30-yard TD pass after Fitzgerald faked out Robbie Gordon on an out-and-up route.
