Tiger Camp 2018: Day 2

Day Two Photo Album

 

Junior Wide Receiver Chris Rowland
-On second practice of fall camp
“Practice went good. There are a few things we need to work on, on the offensive side of the ball. Defense looked good. When it comes down to it, everyone is out here making plays. There are potholes along the way, you know, it’s fall camp. There are going to be some bumps and bruises, but I think in each pothole there is going to be a spring to spring us forward. We just have to keep working hard and stay with each other.”

-On how coach would describe him
“Explosive. If my coach were to describe me, he’d say I’m hard-working. I’m going to keep at it. I’m going to do my job – that’s the most important thing. Whatever I need to do, I’m going to do. No questions asked.”

-On improvements
“Better conditioning. I have to be in better shape. I’ve got to be able to run up-and-down the field. That’s one of the main things. You see guys catching cramps out here because we’re not in shape. We’re going to get there. We’ve got three weeks left in camp. We’ve got a long way, but we’re going to get there.”

Junior Safety Shakur Jackson
-On defense’s work on day two
“The defense did well. We have areas where we need to clean up some stuff – having perfect execution, on top of our moves… but overall we’re getting better day by day.”

-On individual improvements
“I still think I need to work on conditioning so that I can play every rep as hard as I can, as well as perfecting the little things – like playing the ball better, making zone turns, rerouting number two and things like that.”

-On how teammates would describe him
“Tough. Physical. Hardworking.”

-On best joke
“Knock, knock. Who’s there? Me.”

-On ultimate goal for the season
“The ultimate goal is to win the national championship, of course. Before that, win the OVC championship, and just be as great as we can as a team.”

Sophomore Linebacker James Green
-On defense’s work on day two
“I think this is the best day so far. I believe that we were all on one page today. We really got out there. We were all running to the ball, running on and off the field and giving a lot of energy.”

-On leadership roles
“I feel like my place right now is to make sure that everyone is on one accord, bring that energy. Sometimes, we might not start off fast, but I feel like I can be that person to start off fast, keep everyone consistent and on the same page.”

-Highlight of the day
“The best highlight would be the energy of the team.”

Junior Running Back Sabree Curtis
-On offense’s work on day two
“The offense came out with a high energy and executed. We just have to clean up the small mishaps. I think everyone came out, had fun and competed.”

-On how the offense can improve
“We definitely need to get into the playbooks, get into the film and know our assignments.”

-On highlight of practice
“Everyone came out and competed. We had fun.”

-On how Offensive Coordinator Parker would describe him
“Parker would describe me as an explosive player. I like to come out and help my teammates. I’m hardworking, and there for whenever they need me.”

-On Nashville
“My favorite thing to do in Nashville is to go bowling, and my go-to place to eat is MacDougals and Monell’s.”
