NEW ORLEANS - Following a morning scrimmage, the Tulane football team enjoyed an afternoon of light drills and position meetings.
"We competed well today," said head coach Chris Scelfo. "The kids played hard. We need to keep our intensity up for 60 minutes. But we've got a bunch of kids that are competing hard."
In the morning session, the Green Wave defense continued to show improvement, as it dominated a scrimmage that featured the first team offense against the first team defense. In addition to solid all-around play, freshman defensive back Quentin Brown collected two interceptions.
"We put them one vs. one and let them play," Scelfo explained. "The defensive front really got after it and the linebackers played well. (Quentin) Brown had two interceptions and really made some plays."
Rain hampered the afternoon practice, forcing several drills to be moved indoors.
Tulane continues two-a-day drills the remainder of this week. Saturday the Wave players will participate in Fan Day, scheduled at 11:30 a.m. at the Wilson Center. Tulane fans are invited to come get autographs and take pictures of their favorite players.
Tulane opens with Southern Miss on Labor Day, Sept. 6, at 2 p.m. The game will be televised nationally by Fox Sports Net.
