WATCH: Heupel Talks Vols’ Second Scrimmage Of Fall Camp

    by -

    Tennessee made its way back to Neyland Stadium on Sunday morning for its second scrimmage of fall camp.

    Families of players were in attendance as Tennessee went through a pivotal scrimmage as it gets closer-and-closer to the start of the 2022 season.

    Second year head coach Josh Heupel met with the media following the scrimmage and discussed what he called “a cleaner” performance than the Vols’ first scrimmage earlier this week.

    “I thought there were a bunch of positives today in the scrimmage,” Heupel said. “I thought we played cleaner on both sides of the football. Executed, I thought just alignment, assignment, eyes on keys, being lined up ready to go on the defensive side of the football, tackling in space. I thought we did a much better job in those areas the we did in the first scrimmage.”

    While a handful of Vols — including Elijah Simmons and Kamal Hadden — missed the scrimmage due to injury, USC transfer receiver Bru McCoy turned heads after missing the first scrimmage of fall camp.

    Heupel discussed McCoy’s strong performance as well as the left tackle battle, the running back room and keeping the team loose during the grind of fall camp and more.
