And in my best Dennis Green voice with respect to David Ash, if you're going to crown his ass, crown him. Holy cow that kid can spin it. In all seriousness, I get that this is just a snippet of information in the grand scheme of things, but some of the plays Ash makes whets the appetite, no? Here is what I think about the highlights in the video, but I'd love to get the Barkers' thoughts on the matter:
The first play on the video was what the Asset was talking about when he mentioned Ash throwing to Onyegbule into the tightest of windows. Great hands by the true freshman receiver.
The next passing play is Gilbert's horrible pick to Keenan Robinson. Notice the deep drop? It does look like he's playing free safety. Another cap tip to my boy.
The next pass play is wobbly, but accurate ball to Onyegbule and the frosh makes another terrific catch.
The next downfield pass play is an ugly pick inside the red zone by Case McCoy. Blake Gideon jumped the route. Uggh.
The next pass play is a terrific catch by John Harris. We mentioned the young DB's weren't having trouble with position, but they were struggling to make plays on the ball. It looks like Diggs is in great position on this one but he failed to locate the ball.
Next play Shead takes the ball down to the goal line on a long run.
Good throw by Connor Wood to find Terrell in the back of the endzone on the very next pass play.
Then there's the coup de grace, Ash with a bullet to Shipley for a TD against the first team defense. That's a big time throw, true fish to true fish. I wonder how many times they'll make type of correction in the next 3 or 4 years. Will the eventually be roommates and play catch on a fishing boat?
The video ends with Gilbert hitting a little hitch route to Darius White. First down? Perhaps.
All in all, the video validates what we heard about last night's scrimmage in my own humble opinion, but I'm not interested in that part of the equation. I want to know what you think. I realize the sample size isn't ideal, but I think you can glean a lot of information from the piece. I'd love to read your thoughts on the matter.
