Notes From Practice #5
Practice #5 Photos
Mean Green Football participated in their first day of practice with full pads. Continuing their normal practice routine, North Texas went for about two and a half hours.
- Attire: Full pads made their debut at the North Texas Athletics Facility on Wednesday and it was worth the wait. Looking ahead, the team will be in full pads on Thursday afternoon, as well as Friday morning before making the move back to shells for Friday's second practice.
- Kevin Dickerson hauled in what could end up being the catch of camp in just the fifth practice. Running a deep route up the middle, Dickerson laid out for a ball and caught it just before hitting the ground and sliding. The catch came in between not only two defenders, but two coaches as well.
- Lance Dunbar had a huge day on the first day of pads, busting two big runs, one of which went for 50 plus yards.
- Cornerback Royce Hill played lockdown corner all day long. Allowing very few receptions, while hauling in an interception and a few pass blocks.
- The offensive line did exactly what was expected and held their ground. As a group, they defended the quarterbacks really well and didn't allow many people through them.
