Quick read: Three observations from Southern’s Thursday practice

1. MLB Kentavious Preston is one of the first-year freshmen who will play right away. He got reps with the first team Thursday.

2. The Jaguars are being very detailed in their special teams work. They’ve spent a lot of time on the kicking game and worked on a variety of situations.

3. The defense made several big plays in the two-minute drill late in practice and wasn’t shy about celebrating.
