August 11, 2003Bloomington, Ind. - With everyone in full pads, the Hoosiers took the field Monday morning for their first two-a-day of fall camp.
Special teams was the primary focus of the beginning portion of practice, with that particular session being highlighted by Brian Lewis blocking a punt. Return man Lance Bennett also provided fireworks when he had a lengthy return up the right sideline.
Both the offense and defense got some work in before squaring off against one another in the second half of practice. The two units went against each other in both 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 format, with quarterback Matt LoVecchio scrambling for a touchdown after not being able to find anyone open on one play. LoVecchio also looked good when he found Glenn Johnson in traffic for a 25-yard gain over the middle.
A couple of newcomers who looked good were freshman running back BenJarvis Green-Ellis and defensive lineman Joel Stubblefield. Green-Ellis used his strength and quickness to knife through for a couple solid gains, while Stubblefield wrangled freshman running back Kenni Burns in the backfield for a loss.
The Hoosiers alternate two-a-day and single-practice days throughout the next couple weeks.
