Marvin Wilson commented on the complete atmosphere change of practice.
Telling quote from Marvin Wilson before today's practice: “Different atmosphere right now. It’s a family. You know, it doesn’t feel like a job anymore. It feels like something we love. You loved football in high school, now you love it again in college.”— Curt Weiler (@CurtMWeiler) March 21, 2018
Unfortunately Nyqwan Murray (Noonie) will be having fun from the sidelines as he will miss the rest of the spring with a knee injury.
It’s not all fun and games as there’s certain brand of intensity and energy shown throughout practice so far.
Deondre Francois spoke about what it’s like leading and encouraging from the sidelines as he recovers from his knee injury.
“It’s a big role that I have to play, because being hurt, it’s very difficult to try and lead from the outside looking in,” Francois said. “You have to be very assertive. You have to lead players in different ways. Everything I can do possible to help the team and the leadership standpoint, that’s what I’m doing.”
Willie Taggart was in Orlando recruiting at the Under Armour All-America camp (he’s allowed to be there as his son, Willie Taggart, Jr. was competing) and he ran into an old friend:
