Another spring football practice, another rainy, rainy day.
This time, it was the defense’s turn to shine:
> In the team session, cornerback Rojesterman Farris II deflected a pass away from wideout Marcus Armstrong-Brown, and later scored on a pick-6.
> In a winner-take-all session, defensive end Kaimana Padello and linebacker Jahlani Tavai each made sacks as the defense stopped the offense. That meant … the offensive players had to run gassers after practice.
> The deepest unit appears to be the corners, coached by Abraham Elimimian. Farris, Eugene Ford, Zach Wilson, Akil Francisco, Mykil Tolliver give the Warriors a nice corner rotation.
> Armstrong-Brown made his second practice in a row after missing most of spring with ailments. Armstrong-Brown, Isaia Leeth, Karson Greeley, Eric Rooks and Jason-Matthew Sharsh are wideouts with power and jump-ball capabilities. Armstrong-Brown used a post-up move to catch a scoring pass from Cole McDonald in the red-zone drill.
> Yep, McDonald and slotback Cedric Byrd teamed on yet another touchdown play.
> Sheyenne Sanitoa is getting a lot of reps when the Warriors are in a two-linebacker sub-package.
