Second day of practice in the books for Tulane Football Preseason Camp
NEW ORLEANS – Tulane football hit the field in helmets and shorts for its second workout of the preseason Tuesday morning in Yulman Stadium.
The Green Wave held a two-hour practice on the stadium turf, working through individual position drills, a specials team session and offense/defense team drills. Workouts will ramp up in intensity on Wednesday, as the players will don shoulder pads for the first time in fall camp.
The emphasis following Tuesday’s practice session was on eliminating mistakes. Head Coach Willie Fritz wants the players to focus on eliminating pre-snap penalties and mental mistakes that could prevent the team from being successful.
“We had a few more pre-snap penalties that we would like,” Fritz said. “That’s a big part of our philosophy – making sure the Wave don’t beat the Wave. We want to make sure we don’t beat ourselves. When we play clean, we have a better chance to win.”
In one of the standout plays during the team portion of practice, senior running back Sherman Badie caught a pass in the flat from junior quarterback Jonathan Banks and raced up the sideline. On another play, freshman running back Stephon Huderson took a handoff and darted up the middle dodging defenders during team drills.
The Green Wave will practice in helmets and shoulder pads for the first time in camp when they return to the field Wednesday for the third day of workouts. Practices are closed to the public.
