WATCH: Tennessee Hits the Practice Field Post Scrimmage

    by -

    The Tennessee Volunteers have crossed the halfway point of spring camp.

    After taking part in the first spring scrimmage last Saturday, the Vols were back on the field on Tuesday morning for their eighth practice of the spring. In total, Tennessee will have 15 practices lasting until mid-April.

    The Vols were flying around the field in the early portions of practice on Tuesday, with noticeable vocal leaders on the field. As mentioned last week, the overall smoothness of the routine looks good. It’s hard to compare it to anything considering the COVID guidelines that were still hanging over the program last year. Regardless, though, the train looks to be running very smoothly here in the early stages of year two.

    Even just eight practices into spring camp this year, the Vols already have a good idea as to what is going into different packages and schemes.

    Tennessee edge rusher Roman Harrison spoke about that routine and comradery after the Vols’ practice today.

    “Our dime package consists of me, Tyler [Baron], O [Omari Thomas], and B.Y. [Byron Young],” Harrison said on Tuesday. “When we are all on the field or are about to go on the field, our goal is just to attack relentlessly. Somebody is going to get there. That’s what we do know. The motivation is just us feeding off of each other’s energy. Like today – We had a pretty good practice, back-to-back sacks, and the whole defensive sideline was pretty hype. So seeing all of that kind of just gives us more and we feed off of that.”
