Second Day Of Double Sessions In The Books

Aug. 6, 2008

ATLANTA – With the heat index soaring over 100 degrees, the Georgia Tech football team completed its second set of two-a-days Wednesday at the Rose Bowl Fields. The Jackets practiced in full pads for the morning session and shells during the afternoon.

“Today was your typical two-a-day,” head coach Paul Johnson said. “There were some good elements, but also some poor ones. It is a test of will and a chance for us to see who is good and who can’t handle it.”

The morning session featured one-on-one drills as well as live game situations among other things. There were some highlights on both sides of the ball, but a long run by sophomore B-back Jonathan Dwyer to the left side drew applause from the fans. Redshirt senior receiver Andrew Smith also broke a long run down the right sideline on a reverse play.

Tech’s defense continued to make plays as well, forcing several fumbles and the dreaded up-down Tech players have to do after a miscue.

It’s not easy being out here,” Johnson added. “If it was, everyone would do it.”

The Jackets will practice once tomorrow, 3:00 PM at the Rose Bowl Fields before their third round of two-a-days on Friday (9:30 AM and 5:15 PM).
