Notes From the First Day of Fall Camp

The Nebraska Football team took the practice field for the first time this season on Saturday. Here are some brief notes from head coach, Bo Pelini after practice. 

*Bo Pelini said his team executed very well for the first practice.

*True freshmen Alonzo More, and Jared Afalava have not made it to camp yet due to resubmitting eligibility paper to the NCAA.

*There are seven true walk ons in camp, and Pelini says that is a perfect number.

*Former Husker Safety Austin Cassidy is helping assist the coaching staff. The staff is also running with four graduate assistance. They have used only two GA’s in previous years under Pelini.

*Pelini said he would like to be more committed to throwing the ball this hear, and he thinks the Summer work outs have benefited the passing game.

*Defensive tackle Todd Peat Jr. Was not at practice Saturday. Pelini said his back problems is only part of the reason he was not listed in the 105 man roster, that are eligible to practice.

*Despite being listed as a cornerback in spring practice, Braylon Heard worked out for the majority of the day at his orginal position if running back.

*True freshman running back Imani Cross is as big, if not bigger than advertised.
