Energy emotion improve at Tuesday?s practice

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas Razorback football continued fall camp with a two-hour practice on Tuesday. The team worked in shorts and helmets on the practice fields just south of Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.

"We saw some good things happen at practice today," offensive coordinator Paul Petrino said. "We had a few missed assignments here and there. You never know for sure until you watch it on tape. We did have some big plays. We had a few big plays and a few mistakes. I do think we came out, fought hard today and worked hard today. "

Another blistering day in Fayetteville made way for another scorching practice. Arkansas’ offensive coordinator was pleased with the effort he saw from the players in dealing with the heat.

"I think we handled the heat a lot better today," Petrino said. "There is a long way to go and you can always do better. We just need to keep working hard."

Members of Arkansas freshmen class shined again on Tuesday, especially on the offensive front.

"Jarius Wright made a bunch of big plays," Petrino said. "He stood out a little bit. Michael Smith had some nice runs. De’Anthony Curtis also made a few big plays."

Arkansas’ seasoned group of tight ends will also add umph to the offense with their ability to block, run routes and catch passes.

"We can really take advantage of our group of tight ends," Petrino said. "You’ll see them in motion a lot of times or lining up in different places. That will definitely be a personnel group we use a lot. (Andrew) Davie is an on-the-line blocker and can control the edge. (D.J.) Williams can run good routes down the field. They are both good runners."

Razorback football will return to the practice field Wednesday at 3 p.m. Visit ArkansasRazorbacks.com for updated information on Arkansas’ fall camp.
