Happy Monday everyone. Welcome back to Monday’s with Miles. We just finished up our first 20-hour week of practice and boy do things pick up quickly around here. We have 10 new freshmen on the squad this year which makes up over a third of our team! I am happy to say that it seems as though all the newbies are integrating well and our older kids have worked them right into the fold.
It will be interesting to see how this team continues to develop over the course of the fall and I am hopeful that by the time the season begins we will be a well-oiled machine - freshmen and all! We have had a heavy focus on fundamentals and hope that our sharpness will be on display during our scrimmage this Friday.
The reality is it will be the first scrimmage for both us and Stanford so I don’t expect it to look seamless. It will be a great opportunity to see where our holes are and for our players to step into new roles and shine. Can’t wait to see what the 2014 Golden Bears look like! I’ll let you know how it went on Monday. Until then…Go Bears!
