Illini Training Camp: Day 5
Aug. 8, 2014
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. - After two days of split-squad practices in no pads and two more in shells, the Fighting Illini reunited as one unit and strapped on the pads Friday night under the lights in Memorial Stadium.
After a period of individual drills, Illinois went into 7-on-7 periods and team periods before the day's main attraction: the gauntlet drill. The Illini got in some good hitting for the first time all camp and you could tell the players enjoyed it.
Saturday's practice is the first two-a-day of fall camp, with the Orange and Blue practicing at 8 a.m. and 7 p.m.
