Vanderbilt Continues Spring Practice
Posted Mar 21, 2012
Coach James Franklin and the Vanderbilt football team returned to the practice field on Tuesday for the third session of the 2012 spring practice period.
The Commodores returned to the practice field on Tuesday afternoon for the third session of spring practice and the first in full pads. In addition to the first practice that featured sessions of full contact, Tuesday’s practice was the first to have referees on hand to officiate.
Tuesday also marked the first practice featuring one on one blocking drills for the offensive and defensive linemen. Redshirt sophomore defensive tackle
had an impressive afternoon, repeatedly powering his way through offensive linemen. Along the offensive line, redshirt sophomore
showed improvement after struggling with injuries during the past two seasons. If Ramsay can stay healthy this season, he may see significant playing time.
, who may start next season, struggled during Tuesday’s practice, getting beat by defensive ends
threw the ball well, consistently hitting receivers downfield. Redshirt freshman
made multiple long receptions on downfield passes. On one play, Carta-Samuels connected with Trent Pruitt, who beat
on a long route downfield. Former quarterback
, who converted to H-back at the beginning of spring practice, also made several athletic catches during practice. If Kentera continues his performance into the 2012 season, he will be a real threat for the Commodore offense. True freshman early-enrollee
struggled, at one point throwing interceptions on consecutive plays to
Tuesday’s practice ended with a full contact 11-on-11 drill placing the offense at the 10-yard line. The short drive ended with
cutting through the defensive line for a 5-yard touchdown. Listed at 218 pounds, Tate has lost a noticeable amount of weight and has gained some quickness off the line of scrimmage that he has not had in years past.
The Commodore football team continues practice on Thursday at 4:15 p.m. at the John Rich practice facility. All practices this spring are open to the public.
