FAYETTEVILLE – The University of Arkansas football team practiced on Wednesday on the UA practice fields as it continued workouts during the bye week.
Defensive coordinator and secondary coach Paul Haynes spoke to the media after practice and discussed team’s approach for the bye week.
"We’ve been doing a lot of stressing the little things," Coach Haynes said. "One of the reasons we’ve played better over the last few weeks is we’ve been doing the little things right. We’ve tackled better and we haven’t been given up as many big plays. So we’re stressing those things, taking it piece by piece and working on fundamentals and technique."Coach Haynes also commented on the competition between the young players in the secondary.
"They have done a great job," Coach Haynes said. "Competition is awesome. When you have competition, it makes you get better and it makes you compete. Those guys have been practicing hard."
