Yale took the field for the first time on Saturday. Here's a story
from the first day.
Here's some more quick tidbits...
-- The team, overall, just looks bigger and stronger. Take Spencer Rymiszewski for example. He played well at CB on Saturday and must have packed on 10-15 lbs.
"Guys worked," Tony Reno said. "They're noticeably bigger."
-- Copache Tyler missed practice for undisclosed reasons on Saturday, but is expected to return. Beau Iverson (illness) will miss some time.
-- An intrasquad scrimmage is scheduled for Saturday and Yale will scrimmage at Brown on Sept. 5.
-- QB Rafe Chapple appears to have the backup QB job right now.
-- I caught up with Bo Hines, who was excited to be back on the field. He was impressed with the level of play, he said. He also spoke highly of DBs Cole Champion and Foye Oluokun.
Said Oluokun about Hines: "He's getting it. As he gets up to speed, you can see the tools he has."
Oluokun also mentioned WR Chris Williams-Lopez as a player that stood out on Saturday.
-- Some highlights...
Robert Clemons made the catch of the day, a diving grab down the right sideline...Chapple connected with Hines for a TD...Matt Oplinger broke up a pass...Will Bryan had an INT on a tipped pass...Conor Furey showed his athleticism making a nice catch in the air...Hayden Carlson and James Nicholas also had INTs...Duncan Morfitt looked solid.
