CORAL GABLES, FLORIDA (HurricaneSports.com) – The Miami Hurricanes held their first scrimmage of #CanesCamp 2015 on Thursday night under the lights at Cobb Stadium.
Following a day off on Wednesday, the Canes were back in action in a highly competitive setting. Miami worked on a variety of situations including goal line, third and long, fourth and short and two-minute drill.
“We mixed it up so much tonight,” Miami head coach Al Golden said.
“We moved the threes up against the twos, a lot of twos up against the ones, and vice versa. So, we really mixed it up. We wanted to get a lot of looks. We weren’t really trying to win the scrimmage on either side of the ball. We were trying to get a look at a lot of different people, take a good look at our concepts, and evaluate and see where we are at.”
“I thought our conditioning was good, and again, we’re injury-free, so we’re blessed,” said Golden.
Players on both sides of the ball credited the opposing unit for their efforts on Thursday night.
“They sacked me a couple of times,” quarterback Brad Kaaya said.
“The D-line is looking really good right now. Getting a lot of good loops and twists up front, creating some problems up there. It’s a solid group, a lot of depth over there. Our linebackers can break coverage and get in the pass game.”
Linebacker Jermaine Grace had good things to say about the offense, especially a talented group of running backs that had a solid showing.
“Offensively, I’ll say Gus [Edwards], but really I’m not going to just single out Gus,” Grace said of scrimmage standouts.
“I’m going to say all our running backs did good today. Cutting back, finding good holes, and stuff like that. So I would say the running backs were definitely a position right now that I would say stood out.”
