As Texas State closed in on the one-third point of preseason training camp, it was obvious that John Thompson’s defense had picked up a swell of momentum.

Fresh off its best practice of camp last Friday night, the Bobcats’ defense turned in yet-another solid session the following morning.

It’s beginning to look a lot like football season.

Last Thursday morning, the Rattlers strapped up in full pads for the first time since the start of summer camp. It was the first contact practice and it wasn’t hard to notice that the Rattlers had been waiting for that all summer.

From the offense against defense positional drills to the morning’s concluding situational scrimmage, practice was loud whether it was defensive coordinator Gilbert Rodriguez Jr. or the players themselves hyping up their teammates

When runners enter a race, one of the things they look for is if the distance is certified. 

A race distance that is certified means the distance of the race has been measured by a person riding a bike to make sure it is accurate. If the race is a 5K and race organizers measure the course in a car for 3.1 miles, chances are the course is either short or long by as much as 300 yards or more. A measurer will measure the distance as 3.1068560 miles. Those last digits are not seen on a car odometer.

There was a no-fly zone that was carried out by Texas State's defensive backs during Friday's practice inside Bobcat Stadium.

Even linebacker Trey McGowan joined in on the fun.

With the the aid of some ill-timed throws on the part of quarterbacks Tyler Jones and Connor White, the Bobcats' defense picked off five passes and authored easily its best practice through the first week of preseason camp.
