BOCA RATON, Fla. – A lightning delay postponed the start of Florida Atlantic University football’s 11th practice of fall camp on Friday.
Despite the delay, both sides of the ball made nice plays in the session, which was shortened slightly. Highlights included Kemar Downer breaking up a Daniel Parr pass during seven-on-seven drills, followed by Dustin Bowens snagging a Parr throw. Later on in the session, Cre’von Leblanc picked off a Jaquez Johnson pass when the starting units took the field. Sophomore Ronnie Scott also recorded a break-up of a Tyler Cameron throw.
“It’s practice 11; it’s the middle of camp. I think we’ve had a lot better practices,” said Roc Bellatoni, FAU’s defensive coordinator. “Not that I’m down on it, I think we’ve raised our expectation level and our guys know it. I think that’s a good thing.”
