Practice Keeps Rolling
August 13, 2003Bloomington, Ind. - Indiana took part in its ninth practice Wednesday morning as the Hoosiers enter their second day of two-a-day workouts. It was another spirited effort on the practice fields.
Tight end Aaron Halterman showed leadership skills throughout the workout being as vocal as any offensive player. On the other side of the ball Martin Lapostolle continued to display his experience as he once again led the defensive unit both verbally and by way of example.
The always competitive 11-on-11 short-yardage drill proved to be as intense as ever on Wednesday. The defensive unit came up with three straight stops as Joe Gonzalez, Victor Adeyanju and Kyle Killion turned back the offense's running back to win the contest. The third stop by Killion earned a crowd-pleasing cheer from his fellow defensive players. Prior to the play an animated Coach Al Borges spoke to the offensive unit and then told the defense right where the play was going to be run and sure enough Killion and his teammates came up with the stop.
The numbers game is always something people are talking about with the Hoosiers. Here is an update on where they stand as of Wednesday:
