Leavitt praises play at workout
By THOMAS SIMONETTI
Published April 3, 2005
TAMPA - USF held its first official scrimmage of the spring Saturday and coach Jim Leavitt seemed pleased.
"A lot of guys did a lot of good things. It's hard to tell (who stood out) until you see the film," Leavitt said of the workout that began at 9 a.m. and lasted approximately three hours, with the first- and second-team offenses taking on the first- and second-team defenses, respectively, for more than a hundred snaps.
Among the players Leavitt said impressed him were the running backs and the kickers.
"(Starting running back) Andre Hall looked good," Leavitt said. "(Backup) Ricky Ponton looked good and (backup) Chad Simpson looked good. They all did some nice things."
Leavitt praised two players who have switched positions since they came to USF: defensive back Louis Gachette and defensive end Josh Julmiste.
Gachette, the third-string quarterback last season, moved to free safety. Julmiste moved to defensive end from tight end last season.
Leavitt said the Bulls will work out Tuesday and Wednesday. The team's second scrimmage is at 9 a.m. Saturday.
COACHING CLINIC: A coach's clinic featuring Bucs defensive line coach Rod Marinelli and the USF coaching staff is scheduled for Friday and Saturday at USF.
