Defense reigns supreme during Friday's practice

Sports Editor

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.

It’s not how you start, but rather how you finish.

Lawrence White probably agrees with that adage — although it’s clear that the senior tight end is far from a finished product.

So what kind of player is he?

Well, White has arguably been the best player on Texas State’s talent-rich offense, outside of junior quarterback Tyler Jones and senior tailback Chris Nutall, through the opening week of preseason training camp.

Quick and precise.

That’s how San Marcos’ defense wants to attack opposing teams this season as the group builds around a healthy blend of young emerging players and senior leadership.

A couple of position changes might lead to an adjustment period for a few players, but the Rattlers feel confident that their unit will back up their already potent offense.

UPDATE from the Bobcats' night practice:

Texas State got back to work on Thursday night for a 14-period practice under the lights of Bobcat Stadium.

After wrapping up the morning session about nine hours earlier, the Bobcats spent a fair amount of time in a skeleton passing drill and ended the nightcap with a 10-play scrimmage.

The skeleton drill was probably one of the most competitive parts of the practice with the offense and defense exchanging good plays throughout.

Preseason training camp: For Bobcats, it's about surviving 'the test of time'

Throughout the almost daily grind of fall camp, it’s not all that surprising to see lapses in physical play.

Texas State head coach Dennis Franchione realizes that’s inevitable — although that doesn’t mean he’s going to let those lulls go unnoticed whenever they happen.

More often than not, however, what the veteran head coach watches for is: Who’s going to survive what he calls “the test of time”?
