A day after the low point of camp Alpine, which included a banishment of the team from practice, coach Sean Kugler was more pleased with Tuesday’s workout.
“It was a little better tempo in the individual drills, but when it went to team, and we did a lot of team, the guys were a little tired,” Kugler said. “We’ve got to learn to push through that in those situations.”
“When asked who stood out, he pulled out a familiar refrain.
“The young cat, Aaron Jones,” Kugler said. “Miner fans can expect to see him play. His tempo has been outstanding.
“I’ve been very impressed with Darrin Laufasa, the freshman fullback. (Quarterback) Jameill Showers has been getting more comfortable with the offense every day.
“On the defense, (linebacker) Horace Miller has been doing a nice job, Traun Roberson has done a nice job coming of knee injuries. But all in all, we have a lot of work to do.”
Director of football operations Nate Poss had this to say: “All we need in El Paso, and you can quote me on this, is one set of Jones brothers every year,” he said.
Aaron’s twin brother Alvin is a defensive back.
