SCHOOL IS BACK IN SESSION ON THE HILL… AND BECAUSE OF THAT, COACH CONNELL MAYNOR AND HIS STAFF HAD TO TWEAK THEIR PRACTICE SCHEDULE FROM MORNING TO THE EVENINGS.. DESPITE THE CHANGE, THE BULLDOGS STILL GOT IN A LOT OF GOOD WORK..A&M HAD TO ADJUST TO THE HEAT WAVE OF THE LATE EVENINGS IN THE TENNESSEE VALLEY..DURING the evening no session , MAYNOR team WORKED ON GAME type SCENARIOS LIKE THE 4 MINUTE OFFENSE AND GOAL LINE DRILLS… AQEEL GLASS AND THE OFFENSE HAD SOME POSITIVE RESULTS IN MOST CASES.. BUT DURING CRUNCH TIME, COACH GRANVILLE EASTMAN’S DEFENSE MADE DRIVE ENDING PLAYS. COACH MAYNOR CONTINUES TO BE IMPRESSED WITH HIS TEAM’S WORK ETHIC 3 WE WORKED ON SITUATIONS. WORKED ON SOME FOUR MINUTE OFFENSE. MADE A COUPLE OF MISTAKES BOTH ON THE OFFENSE AND DEFENSE. WE WANT TO BE PREPARED FOR EVERY SITUTION. THIS WAS THE 1ST DAY DOING THOSE THINGS SO OF COURS GUYS WILL MAKE MISTAKES, SO WE HAVE TO GO BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD AND COACH UP THE MISTAKES SO THEY WON’T DO IT AGAIN. THEY ARE GIVING ME THE EFFORT AND RESPONDING TO OUR COACHING SO I’M VERY PLEASED AT THIS POINT. 3 ALABAMA A&M’S NEXT SCRIMMAGE WILL KICK OFF PRIOR TO FAN DAY ACTIVITIES… SCRIMMAGE WILL TAKE PLACE AT 8 A-M IN LOUIS CREWS STADIUM. 3 OF COURSE, THE OFFENSE WILL RELY HEAVILY ON THE PLAY OF AQEEL GLASS AND JORDAN BENTLEY…RECENTLY, THIS DYNAMIC DUO WAS NAMED TO THE Black College Football Player of Year PRESEASON Watchlist… LAST SEASON, GLASS THREW FOR 2,421 yards and 20 touchdowns WHILE BENTLEY RUSHED FOR 509 YARDS AND SEVEN T-DS..
