TU Football: Golden Hurricane Adjust To Montgomery's Fast-Paced Style At First Practice

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

On the first day of practice under Coach Philip Montgomery, the team was excited and energetic as they focused on keeping up the tempo to match his fast pace.

"That pace is fast, man. Day one, we definitely picked up where we left off in the spring, definitely sucking wind, but it's good to get back out," said TU wide receiver Keevan Lucas.

Tulsa linebacker Craig Suits explained just how fast the pace is. "The offense is going fast, we're going fast, [and] everybody's coming in and out. Sometimes you don't know what's happening, you just get in and go and don't even know the call."

It looks like Montgomery’s new team has some catching up to do, because his offense at Baylor averaged 90 snaps per game. Tulsa's average in the past two years is 78.

But as up-tempo as the first practice was, Coach Montgomery says they can pump it up even more. "We were okay today, but we can go a lot faster. I got to get better, [and] they have to get better. We'll add more and get better each and every day," he explained.

Quarterback Dane Evans stated his thoughts on the new system. “I don't know of a quarterback that wouldn't like this system. It's fun, it's fast, we throw it a lot, but the good thing about our system is we also have a great run game.”

And it's only the first practice of 25 until the Golden Hurricane get a chance to show Florida Atlantic just how fast they are.
