Friday night video extras
By Pedro Moura
In a weekly feature from last year we're bringing back back again for the 2011 season, here are two funny and informative videos from the four days of Minnesota-prep practice that didn't make it in any of our 24 posts this week.
First is freshman receiver Marqise Lee, who's made himself a better receiver the classic way: some good old-fashioned ballroom dancing. He's taking the now-famous class at USC this semester, following in the footsteps of Trojans past like Matt Leinart and Mark Sanchez. See what Lee had to say about it:
Second is a fellow freshman, kicker Andre Heidari, an early enrollee who has impressed the coaches with a strong, accurate leg thus far. It's now potentially an option for USC to kick a field goal out to about 50 yards, something the Trojans didn't have the last two years with Jordan Congdon and Joe Houston. See video of Heidari talking about his preparation this week here, including his recounting of the special-teamers' visit to the Coliseum on Wednesday:
