Mizzou Football Practice #7 Report

COLUMBIA, Mo. – During #MIZCamp on Wednesday morning at the Mizzou Athletics Training Complex (MATC), the defense led by new coordinator Barry Odom stood out, making numerous big plays and holding strong in various situations. The offense also showed big-play ability and was able to move the ball while simulating the final two minutes of a half. Below are some highlights from the seventh practice of fall camp:

  • During 11-on-11, LB Donavin Newsomforced a fumble along the sideline that was recovered by DB Anthony Sherrils, who hustled to keep the ball from going out of bounds to secure the turnover.
  • LB Terez Hall jumped a route and intercepted a pass during the WR/TE vs. LB/DB drills.
  • QB Marvin Zanders found WR Johnathon Johnson on a long pass along the sideline for a 35-yard gain in 11-on-11.
  • The defensive line consistently closed up running lanes during the 11-on-11 portion.
  • LB Kentrell Brothers delivered a big hit along the sideline, preventing a reception.
  • TB Russell Hansbrough made an instinctive move to get upfield on a swing pass to gain 12 yards and move the chains.
  • DL Nate Howard recorded a sack during 11-on-11 after reading a designed rollout.
  • Andrew Baggett converted a 47-yard field goal with plenty of leg as the ball soared through the uprights.
  • DB Tavon Ross delivered a strong hit during the receivers vs. secondary period.
  • Nick Coffman closed practice with a 53-yard field goal after the second-team offense drove down the field to put the special teams unit in position to score.
