EWU drills get more physical

We are halfway through spring drills at Eastern, and also with our eight-part series on the different unit. Here's a link to my story today on the offensive line . Tomorrow, space permitting, you can expect the same treatment on a defensive line that should be very strong.

Meanwhile, I spent Tuesday afternoon at practice, which everyone agreed was the most physical of the spring,

with inside run drills and Oklahoma three-on-three blocking added to the routine. “We need to set that tempo, develop that physicality,” said head coach Beau Baldwin after practice. “That is if you’re a team that wants to be more balanced (on offense), and that’s what we want as a team and as a coaching staff.” As Baldwin said those words, center Drew Reynolds made a one-handed catch, just for fun. “To be honest, running around is what we do as a fast-paced, no-huddle team, and sometimes we get away from that physical work and that’s what we focused on today.” S Jeff Minnerly was back in full pads for the first time in almost two weeks, while RB Mario Brown is still being held out of drills with a concussion…The Eagles will hold practices today and Friday, both at 4 p.m., with a scrimmage Saturday at 10:30 a.m… The Red-White Game will be played April 28 at 2 p.m.
