COLUMBIA, Mo. - The Mizzou Football team wore shoulder pads for the first time as the squad made its way through its third day of fall camp practices on Wednesday. The Tigers took to the Kadlec Athletic Fields for the second day in a row, working out for two hours. Mizzou's Thursday practice will also be of the shoulder pads-only variety for the team's first fully-padded practiced on Friday.
A couple highlights from today's scrimmaging included:
- Redshirt freshman QB Eddie Printz stood in the pocket well and delivered a strike down the field to redshirt freshman TE Jason Reese for a long gain up the middle...
- The series featured a great read on the defensive side of the ball, as redshirt freshman DB Anthony Sherrils broke on a pass across the middle to tip it away for a pass breakup, nearly intercepting the ball...
- Redshirt sophomore QB Maty Mauk was dialed in during 11-on-11 situational sets, withstanding the pressure of Mizzou's experienced defensive line...
- Mauk moved his side up the field during one series with an impressive sequence, first hitting senior WR Jimmie Hunt on a deep down-and-out. Mauk then connected with junior TB Russell Hansbrough on a flair route before going back to Hunt on the same pattern as his previous catch, which followed an incompletion...
- The incompletion came with its own case of theatrics as Mauk expertly eluded pressure from senior DL Matt Hoch and senior DL Lucas Vincent before lofting the ball out of bounds...
- Mauk followed that up with a screen pass to senior WR Darius White for a first down...
Lunch and positional meetings follow practice. The staff will get together for their own meeting at noon ahead of dinner and an evening full-team meeting.
