813area has new update 20 hours ago USF Football Preseason Camp Report: 8/14
Embrace the suck. It was the eleventh practice of preseason camp for the USF football team on a cloudy and humid Tuesday at the Frank Morsani Football Complex. While we didn’t get a glance at any major action, here’s what stood out: Upon entering practice, we immediately noticed head coach Charlie Strong and assistants cracking down on penalties. The offense and/or defense appeared to be doing five up-downs every time a penalty was committed. It’s something to keep an eye on as penalties plagued the Bulls many times in 2017. TE Mitchell Wilcox was not in pads for a second straight practice. The Mackey Award Watchlist tight end was observing for most of the day. QB Brett Kean had a long 25-yard touchdown throw to freshman Terrence Horne Jr. in an 11 vs 11 drill. Following practice, assembled media was able to speak with running backs coach Shaun King, RB Jordan Cronkrite, RB Trevon Sands and RB Elijah Mack. King provided some insightful commentary, and even hinted at using a running back committee as opposed to naming one starter. “The word starter doesn’t even exist in our room, at some point a lot of those guys are going to play this year,” King said. “The characteristics of a really good program, a program that’s becoming a consistently elite program is when you have a lot of competition. And that’s what we have in the running back room.” Some very insightful commentary from Coach @realshaunking following today’s @USFFootball practice. More to come. #USF pic.twitter.com/1slsh5EJhE— Connor Akeman (@ConnorAkeman) August 14, 2018 King on UF transfer, Cronkite. “He approaches it the right way and does the right things on and off the field. I’m excited to see him contribute along with the rest of those guys.” After sitting out last season, Cronkite will see his first action in the green and gold. “It’s a great feeling, I’m locked in mentally.” Sophomore RB Mack talked about “embracing the suck” and his special teams performance. “It’s going to be a lot of hard work and pain... we’ve got to embrace the suck. I’m trying to go out there and grind and be the best I can be,” Mack said. “The biggest thing I can take away from this camp is how we’ve grown as a team.” Junior RB Trevon Sands on the depth of the running back core. “Overall, we are all just grinding right now. We have eight great running backs on this team and we are putting in the work.” Quote of the Day Quote of the day? “You aren’t going to know how it (special teams) looks until we kick it off against Elon in front of 60,000 at Ray Jay, right? Speak it into existence.” - @realshaunking— Connor Akeman (@ConnorAkeman) August 14, 2018

A goal from Emma Davies was the high point of the night, but the freshmen showed their potential The USF women’s soccer team went down in their last preseason exhibition, 4-1. to Washington on Monday night. Our final exhibition match! We are so excited for this season. #RiseUp pic.twitter.com/e8MKvnvkR5— USF Women's Soccer (@USFWSOC) August 14, 2018 It was a wet evening, with lightning delaying the game by an hour. It also shortened the game down to two 30-minute halves instead of three 30-minute periods as originally planned. The fans were also in the dark about the time because the scoreboard seemed to have been struck by lightning and wasn’t functioning. The game kicked off and looked to be an even affair from the off. However, Washington’s first corner saw the cross sneak through the USF defenders to a Husky at the top of the box. Goalkeeper Rikki Farquharson got a hand to the shot but couldn’t push it up far enough to save it. The Bulls unfortunately would see UW score again on a free kick just a few minutes later. The long ball into the box went through a mess of traffic and the slick ball somehow found a Washington head to go up 2-0. USF went on the attack following the second, and freshman Sydny Nasello ripped off two extremely good shots, one denied by a top class save. She was very unfortunate not to have scored, but she continued to make a name for herself leading up to the home opener on Thursday. It’s worth noting that USF played the entire night with a mix of newcomers and returning players from last season. Occasionally the nerves showed in the younger players, but the young team showed a lot of promise. Emma Davies showed a cool head on the finish that resulted in USF’s lone goal. A steal off the back line by Megrath set Davies up nicely for her first goal in a USF shirt. Speaking of uniforms, USF debuted their new white kits, which looked sharp enough to be worth writing this sentence. Washington would score two in the second half after keeper Sydney Martinez entered the game. USF nearly had a second when Katie Kitching got sprung free late in the game. She beat the charging Husky keeper to the ball and flicked it on frame, but one of the retreating defenders just managed to reach the ball in time to clear it off the line. After the game, Coach Denise Schilte-Brown spoke highly of the freshmen heading into the opener. “We are farther ahead this year. The freshmen just haven’t really missed a beat,” Schilte-Brown said. “You look at (freshman defender) Mia Palango and Sydny Nasello, Emma Davies tonight. You just have these good freshmen that are out there, and they seem a little more seasoned than your typical freshman.” As noted during the first game, USF’s wingers pushed very high up the field. There was less opportunity for them against a higher quality opponent, but the high offensive line was there. Related, the strike partnership potential between Evelyne Viens and Sydny Nasello should be mouthwatering for fans, and terrifying for defenders. Women’s soccer opens their season at home vs Towson this Thursday.
