LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Day 2 of fall camp wrapped up Tuesday night at the Texas Tech Football Training Facility, and the non-contact session was highlighted by the play of the backup offensive unit.
"We've got a lot of depth at the skill positions, some good competition," said Brown. "I thought our skill two's in team [skeleton passing drills] were significantly better than our one's."
Players of note mentioned by Brown after practice were redshirt freshman wide receiver Derek Edwards, true freshman running back Quinton White, and redshirt freshman quarterback Michael Brewer.
"...[Michael] Brewer was sharp, and that makes us better," Brown told reporters after practice. "And we have competition up front too...Tony Morales is going to push Deveric Gallington, and we have some interesting battles on the inside [of the line], too."
As for the injured players trying to get back into the swing of things, Red Raider head coach Tommy Tuberville and Offensive Coordinator Neal Brown have acknowledged it will take time for those coming off knee surgery(Eric Stephens, Alex Torres, DeAndre Washington).
However, after Day 2 of practice, Neal Brown seems to like what he sees thus far from the trio, and he can't see much of a difference in their practice from pre-injury to now.
"I can't tell a whole lot of difference to be honest with you," said the third-year Red Raider coordinator. "I though Eric [Stephens] and [Alex] Torres were really good yesterday, I didn't notice them falling off today. I thought DeAndre [Washington] was significantly better today than he was day one, and it's all mental with those guys at this point."
Yesterday, Tuberville talked about how fun it is to see his son, Tucker Tuberville, be out on the practice fields with the Red Raiders after finishing up his senior season in 2011 with the Wolfforth Frenship Tigers.
However, the other former Frenship Tiger quarterback has been the most impressive signal caller on the field this spring and fall. Seth Doege has not only progressed on the field, but off the field as well.
"He's the type of quarterback who you want to step up and say words in the huddle to the defense," said Tuberville. "He's really grown up in a year's time."
