LSU PM Practice Report: Fournette, Paris go through gauntlet passing drill

Scene setting

- LSU ended its second day of fall camp with a Tuesday afternoon practice in muggy conditions. Half of the team (mostly reserves and freshmen) worked out. The other half went through drills Tuesday morning. Reporters are granted about 15-20 minutes to view individual drills.

Observations

- Fournette sighting: Running back Leonard Fournette went through drills for a second straight day. He dropped one pass out of a possible five in a gauntlet style passing drill. Players are thrown five passes in rapid succession while running a sprint from one sideline to the other. No consecutives passes are thrown the same side of the field, forcing a player to turn quickly after catching the previous pass. Apparently, Fournette wasn’t running fast enough across the field. “Run Leonard!” offensive coordinator Cam Cameron barked at him.

- Paris shines: Freshman and early enrollee Ed Paris caught all five passes in that gauntlet drill. Defensive and offensive players each get a try. “EP!” a few defensive players yelled toward Paris after he finished 5 for 5. Paris is listed as the No. 2 cornerback.

- Happy Cam: Cameron seemed to be pleased this afternoon with the play of quarterback Anthony Jennings. Jennings worked with the young guys in the afternoon Tuesday after going with the veterans Monday. Jennings and Brandon Harris will rotate during the split-squad scrimmages, which end Thursday.

Next up

LSU will again have split-squad scrimmages on Wednesday, with the first starting at 9:20 a.m.
