Spring Camp 2015 got underway Sunday afternoon at Alumni Stadium, shortly after Team Ontario’s Red-Black Game concluded. Camp continues all week with film sessions, meetings and daily practices.
The Mercury’s Rob Massey was at Monday’s practice and posted his first training camp story last night – Football Gryphs get together for their spring training. Massey tells us the practices are “slated for 4:45 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and a 3:45 p.m. session Friday”. Since everyone is interested in knowing what is happening at the quarterback position …
Monday, James Roberts took all the quarterback reps as Jazz Lindsey isn’t at the camp.
“Jazz is still a little sore,” Lang said. “We gave him the week off. (Offensive coordinator) Todd (Galloway) is going to speak to him after the week to sort of get a sense of where he’s at, both mentally and physically.”
Yes, rising sophomore James Roberts is the only QB in camp. That is a major concern and part of why I’ve written that the 2015 recruiting class needed to include at least two, but preferably three, QB prospects. (The Gryphons have signed Vancouver’s Theodore Landers and Scarborough’s Simon Shi.) I’d be more worried if Roberts hadn’t had such an impressive freshman season. He proved he was a CIS-calibre quarterback from the get-go. Depth is the real issue here.
