Arkansas Ends Two-A-Day Workouts With Watermel
BY ANDRES FOCIL
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – After spending an hour and a half working on team drills including field goals and punting, the Arkansas Razorbacks put an exclamation point on the end of two-a-day practices by snacking on fresh watermelons.
Razorback head coach Houston Nutt said the Hogs focused on team work instead of individual instruction after noticing a few mistakes during the Friday morning workout.
“After watching the film from this morning we were not satisfied with some of the missed assignments,” Nutt said. “Sometimes you leave the field thinking things are alright, but then you go back and look and see they need to be corrected.
“We opened with punt protection then moved right into game-type situations. We worked on assignments, substitutions, getting the play off before the 25 second clock expired and a lot of different things like that.”
Nutt added that fans will see a similar workout at 6 p.m. Saturday following Fan Day festivities.
“We will scrimmage only the second and third team players,” Nutt said. “We’re going to work pretty much the same way as today. We’re not going to scrimmage the first team players. We’ve got some guys nicked up a little and we just don’t want to take a chance.”
Fan Day will be held from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. Fans will be able to get autographs and have their picture taken with players and coaches. The team will then move to Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium for the 6 p.m. practice session.
“This (Fan Day) is a great tradition,” Nutt said. “It gets bigger and better every year. We are looking forward to a big crowd tomorrow and for our fans being able to meet their team.”
