Wow, life sure goes by quickly with football running your life. I guess it’s true when they say, “Life goes by fast when you’re having fun.”
Well, we are already at our 12th practice–of 15–today. Today brings another short practice combined with a decently-sized scrimmage.
The past two scrimmages have provided some memorable moments. Two weeks ago, Da’John Harris stripped Mitch Mustain and hustled 55 yards down the field. And then Dillon Baxter weaved his way into the endzone, creating a YouTube sensation and ringing up memories of Reggie Bush against Fresno State. By the way, that YouTube video is nearly up to two million hits.
And last week, we heard–not saw–of a Kyle Prater one-handed grab and run for a 40-yard score. (NOTE: we saw the play, but no video was posted…and yes, it was magical)
What will today’s scrimmage bring? Who knows, but one thing is for sure.
The Trojans are coming out for every play during every drill at every practice this Spring.
Following today’s practice, there will be two more “regular” two-and-a-half-hour practices and the annual Trojan Huddle on May 1.
It’s an exciting time to be a Trojan. (Other than the fact no Trojans were selected in the 1st round of the NFL Drat.)
But that’s a story for another time.
