With two practices under their belt, we were able to see Northwestern on the field for the first time in 2017 training camp. The team wore shoulder pads for the first time this summer; quarterbacks wore non-contact jerseys and the tackling at all positions was essentially wrapping up and hugging the ballcarriers. It’s easy to over-analyze but we were able to get a glimpse at what this team will look like come Sept. 1.
We’ll be back at Hutcheson Field for practice again on Friday, so if you have any questions about Wednesday’s practice or want us to pay particular attention to something on Friday, please comment.
Quick note, Northwestern will head up to Kenosha on Saturday and will be there for a week.
