Hornets complete day two of camp

The Alabama State football team went through its second day of fall camp practice Thursday at Hornet Stadium.

The Hornets endured a two-hour workout in helmets for the second consecutive day during the afternoon workout.

"I was pleased with the energy, commitment and enthusiasm the guys had," head coach Reggie Barlow said. "They moved around well today and we were able to see a lot of guys play. I was pleased with the improvement from day one to day two.

The Hornets worked out under mostly overcast, cloudy skies during the afternoon session, one that kept temperatures down. The conditions led to an improved overall performance from the team.

"We saw a better, consistent effort from the guys," Barlow said. "They stayed into the drills the entire time and competed well. We put them through conditioning drills at the end of practice, just to get a better look of where guys are. It was good to see everyone finish. We're making strides but we naturally still have a long way to go."

The Hornets return to practice Friday afternoon at 3:30 p.m.

"We talk about day three of camp as being a good barometer," Barlow said of tomorrow's workout. "On day one and day two, you get them acclimated and help them figure their way through things. Now on day three, they know what's expected. So we want to see more energy, more finished plays and more effort. Friday's practice will be a good opportunity to observe and see the type of improvement they make from Thursday."
