A.P.'s Camp Blog: 8-6
Mr. President, Mr. President!
Fans were treated with another visit from team president Danny Morrison during Friday's morning practice. He obliged a few with pictures and others with casual conversation.
Better to Receive
Kenny Moore, who is competing for the starting spot opposite Steve Smith, enjoyed another solid practice. He hauled in a couple tough catches during the morning practice, but more impressive were his moves after the catch.
After one catch, Moore spun back outside to leave CB R.J. Stanford empty-handed. On his next reception, Moore shook FS Charles Godfrey before sprinting into the end zone.
Oliver Young also showed big-play ability, racing by his defender on a go-route to catch a long touchdown pass from Jimmy Clausen. Young also scored during the goal-line portion of practice, going over the middle to secure a Hunter Cantwell offering.
Adding even more speed to the arsenal is Dexter Jackson, who uses his blazing wheels to make up for his small stature (5-foot-9, 182 lbs.). Jackson used his speed to make a nice catch along the sidelines on a pass from Tony Pike.
Armanti Edwards is looking more comfortable in his new position. He has done well finding holes in the zones and settling down for receptions. He sometimes struggles with press coverage, but when he is allowed to release freely, his quickness allows him to separate from the defenders. He did get muscled a little bit by Captain Munnerlyn, as Munnerlyn wrestled the ball out of his hands for a fumble. Edwards will surely keep that play in mind, as he was hassled by his teammates afterwards.
An Evening Stroll
The players had a brief walk-through in the evening session, gearing up for Saturday's Fan Fest at Bank of America Stadium.
Off to Another Training Camp
Friday was my last day of covering practices, as I must now report to my own training camp with the Wofford College football team. It has been a great experience and I've really enjoyed being the eyes and ears for those who could not attend this year's training camp.
I'll now pass the baton to Alex Montgomery, who will take over and cover all the remaining training camp practices for PantherInsider.com.
