Southeastern Football Practice Report – Day 18

HAMMOND, La. – The Southeastern Louisiana football team continued to work towards the start of the 2018 season with a morning practice Saturday at Strawberry Stadium.


SLU head coach Frank Scelfo was pleased with what he saw from both sides of the ball during scrimmage situations during Saturday’s workout.


“Our offense has made some improvements in picking up blitzes and that was a big step in the right direction compared to earlier this week,” Scelfo commented. “Both sides made big plays during our two-minute drills, so we have to continue to learn and gain experience from all these situations.”


The Lions made two big pass plays during team drills. Junior Lorenzo Nunez found sophomore Austin Mitchell for a 68-yard touchdown. Later during a two-minute situation, junior Marquis Williams got open and ran under a 75-yard bomb from junior Chason Virgil.


The SLU defense was able to get through for several sacks, as senior Jon Miller, freshman Donniel Ward-Magee, junior Tre Spann and sophomore Isaac Adeyemi-Berglund caught the quarterback behind the line. On the final play of the day, freshman Ferlando Jordan ended the last Lion drive with an interception.


The Lions open the 2018 season with a 7 p.m. contest on Aug. 30 at ULM.
