LAWRENCE, Kan. – Brian Hanni, the Voice of the Jayhawks, will be reporting from 2016 Fall Camp with his “Three-Point Stance” segment, featuring three thoughts from Kansas football training camp. In his first segment, Hanni was able to grab KU head coach David Beaty to get his thoughts from Thursday’s season-opening practice.
In addition to chatting with Hanni, Beaty met with the local media to discuss Thursday’s session in which he made mention of multiple players on both sides of the ball he was pleased with. On offense Beaty complimented the play of wide receivers LaQuvionte Gonzalez and Evan Fairs, running backs Ke’aun Kinner and Denzell Evans and tight ends Ben Johnson and Jace Sternberger. On defense, the second-year head coach was impressed with defensive linemen Josh Ehambe, Dorance Armstrong Jr. and Anthony Olobia, linebacker Marcquis Roberts and safety Fish Smithson.
According to Beaty, the most notable difference from going through the opening practice of his first season at the helm of the KU program and now his second was seeing the amount of experienced players on the field, especially on defense.
“As I looked over there on that defensive side every single guy in the first group has experience and they have quite a bit of it now which is good,” Beaty said. “I thought our defense looked really good in 7-on-7. I thought they did some nice things clamping routes and they made it difficult on the offensive side at times.”
Kansas will return to the practice fields for session number two Friday afternoon. The Jayhawks will go through their first two-a-day practice on Tuesday, Aug. 9. All practices are closed to the public with the exception of Fan Appreciation Day, which will be held in Memorial Stadium on Saturday, Aug. 20.
