LUBBOCK, Texas - Texas Tech's second workout of training camp was a productive one as the Red Raiders practiced on the game field in Jones AT&T Stadium for the second straight day.
On yet another warm afternoon, the Red Raider faithful turned out in large numbers in what was the last scheduled day that workouts will be open to the public. The team will move over to the practice fields on Monday afternoon for their third practice and it will be closed to the public.
On both sides of the ball, coaches are patiently installing schemes and giving ample opportunity for the freshmen to catch on in hopes of earning playing time this fall. Freshman wide receiver Shawn Corker showcased his talent early on in practice and drew a rousing applause from the fans after a spectacular catch on a fade route in the south end zone. Corker reached over redshirt freshman defensive back Jarvis Phllips and snagged an underthrown ball - thus showing why he was so heavily recruited by the Red Raiders. Corker was a three-star recruit coming out of Fort Lauderdale's Cardinal Gibbons high school this past spring and is listed at 6-1, 191lbs.
Defensively, the Red Raider first team was impressive in a brief scrimmage situation against the first team offense. Senior linebacker Bront Bird showed great range out in the flat with a couple of batted down balls. Bird will be a key cog in James Willis' defense in 2010.
Monday's workout is scheduled for 3 p.m. and will be the first practice with shoulder pads.
