BOCA RATON, FL - Florida Atlantic University's football team returned to the practice field Tuesday morning.
After conducting a pre-practice walkthrough and doing some stretching, the team broke into positional groups for one-on-one drills. From that point, the Owls went into an extended practice period where they focused on fundamentals. The running backs focused on ball security, while quarterbacks and receivers worked on their passing game timing. On the opposite side of the ball, the defensive backs worked on their footwork and technique.
The first full team session of the day was up next and both sides made eye-catching plays with the wideouts hauling a couple of nice passes, while the defense was able to pressure all of the quarterbacks into tough throws.
Special teams were the focus of the next session, as the Owls reviewed kickoff returns and kickoff coverage. The practice ended with a second full squad session, with Keith Reaser's interception in the end zone, being a highlight.
The Owls will return to the field for two sessions on Wednesday.
