FAYETTEVILLE – The University of Arkansas Razorback football team continued its first week of preseason camp Thursday. Offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Jim Chaney met with the media to offer a recap of the day and an update on the team’s progress.
"I think Brandon (Allen) did a nice job today," Coach Chaney said. "I think the quarterback did a nice job. Playing better every day on the field, they’re improving and I’m excited about watching them."
Coach Chaney was asked about his evaluation on how the running backs have progressed in camp.
"I like them. I think they’ve all improved," Coach Chaney said. "They’re very professional. I think they want to get better. Every day they come out with their hats on, ready to go to work, which is always good. For the most part, I’m really proud of how those kids are doing."
With Friday’s practice being the first of the preseason in full pads, Coach Chaney discussed expectations for the upcoming practice.
"It’ll be fun, I’m looking forward to it," Coach Chaney said. "I think because of the pads, it’s the mentality. You want to see a team change when they put full pads on, it’s the game. They’re here to play the game of football and get an education. We get an opportunity tomorrow to get the full pads on so we’ll have some fun with that. It’s always fun, the seniors tend to lead that. You hope [the young kids] demonstrate the understanding the differences between shells and full pads.”
