OSU FALL CAMP Day 13: Evening report
Notable Note: Wide Receiver Obum Gwacham did not participate in the latter half of practice – he was taking precautionary measures after suffering from pain in his left foot earlier in the day.
There was very little interaction between the offensive and defensive units tonight with the exception of red zone drills.
The trend with the two-a-days up until this point has been to take things at a slower pace for players and coaches alike during the second half of the day, honing in more on the fundamentals and basic strategy of an offensive/defensive approach.
This was especially true for Mike Cavanaugh and the offensive line today, as the last 30 minutes of practice was spent working on the same two or three blocking formations.
WR Richard Mullaney is becoming an impact player this fall camp – and his impact is felt most in the end zone.
Mullaney has an uncanny ability to pull down just about anything thrown within a few yards radius of him, and two of the last three night practices have seen him lighting up an imaginary scoreboard in the eyes of coaches and sideline observers.
The defensive line managed some strong pushes into the opposing back field during tonight's practice.
They improved markedly from a lack luster performance earlier today.
Castro Masaniai and Dylan Wynn both ducked through the line on a few occasions, forcing Sean Mannion and Cody Vaz to scramble more often than they had bargained for.
The result was some really off-target throws and some missed opportunities for points in the end zone.
Freshman safety Micah Audis grabbed an interception tonight.
The pass was tipped by a member of the defensive line, and Audiss caught it mid-fall and ran it back 10 yards.
