TROY, Ala. – The Troy football team worked out for just under three hours Friday on the practice fields behind Veterans Memorial Stadium with Saturday’s first scrimmage of fall camp on their minds.
Following individual drills, the Trojans once again spent early practice time polishing up their special teams. Friday’s practice concluded with the offense and defense working on the two-minute drill with the defense coming out the victor.
“I think we’ve done well in a lot of spots. Right now our two-minute package, which should be very similar to what we’re doing, is not very good,” offensive coordinator Kenny Edenfield said. “Defense has made some plays in our two-minute situation.
“I think the quarterback race has a really good battle going on, but it is starting to take form,” Edenfield said. “I think there are a lot of wide outs, right now it’s the wide outs where it is tough. We have some young guys and old guys battling and it’s just trying to figure out who is going to get more reps. We’re going to play a lot of guys. The O-line is coming on. We are really starting to get that depth and really feel strong with the O-line.”
Saturday’s scrimmage will feature around 100 plays with all three units getting a chance to show off for the coaches. The scrimmage is open to the public and is scheduled to being around 10 a.m. in Veterans Memorial Stadium. Coaches and players will take part in Troy’s Media Day following the scrimmage.
Troy opens the 2014 season at in-state rival UAB on August 30 at Legion Field. Kickoff between the Trojans and Blazers is set for 11 a.m. and the game will be televised live on Fox College Sports.
