CORAL GABLES, FLORIDA (HurricaneSports.com) – The Miami Hurricanes closed out the weekend with a Sunday morning practice, the 11th practice of 2015 #CanesCamp.
The Canes returned to the Greentree Practice Fields for the second consecutive day and the sixth time since last Sunday. Miami head coach Al Golden has put an emphasis on working hard and smart, while balancing rest and recovery, as the team prepares for the 2015 season.
“It’s a fine line,” Golden said.
“We have the GPS to monitor them now and again, this is our second day back since the scrimmage. During that stretch of Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, they only had 30 to 40 reps. So, that’s a lot of healing time there and we got this next little push – a little break before we get to the next scrimmage. So, you got to balance it, but when it’s time to go, we got to go.”
Defensive lineman Chad Thomas credited the Hurricane coaching staff and sports medicine staff for helping keep the players healthy as they venture deeper into #CanesCamp.
“There’s knicks and knacks,” Thomas said. “Obviously, we play football and we’re deep into camp so we’re going to have body aches and stuff. Coach is taking care of us.”
“A lot of us are going to see [Head Athletic Trainer] Vinny [Scavo]. We’re staying in the training room, trying to get our body right for the next practice – we can’t give up. So, you just got to keep a good mindset and ignore the knicks and knacks right now.”
