Miami practice report

March, 3, 2010
Why all the love for Miami these days? Well, because the Canes are practicing.

A few notes from Tuesday's practice session, according to the sports information department:

  • The Canes worked on third-down blitz situations, inside run, and pass-rushing drills along with the usual offensive and defensive position drills before wrapping up practice with 11-on-11 team drills.
  • Redshirt freshman running back Lamar Miller practiced for the first time this spring. Miller, who spent last week getting ready for the ACC indoor championships, had a few long runs along with running backs Damien Berry and Mike James.
  • Sophomore safety Vaughn Telemaque intercepted a pass in team drills and also made a pass breakup.
  • Senior wide receiver Leonard Hankerson continued to impress as he caught several passes in 7-on-7 and other passing drills.
  • Junior wideout Travis Benjamin had a 20-yard gain from quarterback A.J. Highsmith in 7-on-7.
  • Junior quarterback Spencer Whipple also had a nice pass to Thearon Collier in team drills. Collier and Kendal Thompkins made a few nice receptions in the team period.
