Practice Report - 8/20
Posted Aug 20, 2003
There have been a lot of injuries this fall, luckily none too serious. Most of the players have returned to practice with the exception to the guys that have had surgeries. Coach Larry Coker on today’s practice, “This was a good day. We handled the ball well. We reacted well and we got a lot of things done today.”
Redshirt freshman quarterback
has decided to transfer. Coach Coker described the situation, “Marc Guillon came by today and asked for a release. Marc wants to transfer to another institution and we’ll certainly do everything we can. He’s a very fine young man and a fine player. Certainly, we hate to see him go. We certainly wish the best for him. We are very disappointed.”
“I was a little bit shocked and surprised (about Marc’s decision). He wasn’t distraught. I think he discussed it with his parents. I think he made a mature decision. I didn’t perceive it was a decision for me to talk him out of. I think he was pretty definite on what he wanted to do”
With the loss of Guillon, freshman
who would have likely been redshirted this year, steps up as the third-string quarterback behind
and Derrick Crudup. Wright could possibly be a traveling redshirt, meaning he would have the redshirt status but would travel with the team in case he was needed.

“The encouraging thing is that

is back practicing and will be backing up Sikes at strong safety.
are still battling for the kicking duties. Gent has really struggled in the past week and banging an extra point off the upright today just adds to his struggles. Peattie hits the ball very solid and is an accurate kicker. Gent has the stronger leg but it does not matter how hard you can kick if you can’t get it through the uprights.
There have been a lot of notable injuries this fall and the younger players have been given the opportunity to step up into larger roles than they have been accustomed to. It has been imperative that the younger players take full advantage of their time on the practice field because they could be called upon during the season at any time.
