    Tunnel drill

    Easily the coolest drill in football practice. It pumped me up when I played in high school, and it's almost just as fun to watch. In the video my eyes were mostly on the defensive linemen. It seems the offense gets to hold quite a bit, making it a bit unfair- despite this, a few players stood out:

    -Lattimer, Laing, & David Irving were able to make tackles at the line of scrimmage. I was stoked to see the true freshman making a play!

    KO is also a beast. I'd like to hear everyone else's thoughts...

    Fun to watch, but very much a fundamentals drill and you hardly see the defense make plays because they are at such a disadvantage....

    Re: Tunnel drill

    I was just going to start a thread on this...If you check the end of the Funnel Drill practice highlight you see Irving make a fingertip tackle. I watched it like 4 times and amazed he was able to reach around that guy to snag SJ. His reach is going to be a huge advantage for us...especially when he starts to really figure this game out. (Not saying he hasn't already just from all reports that he's really raw)

    EDIT: Upon further review it was Nealy not SJ
