UCLA Football Making Progress Offensively

Jedd Fisch thinks summer practices have helped the offense tremendously.

Overall, the UCLA football team seemed to have its best practice of Fall camp so far yesterday.

Josh Rosen’s throws were better for the most part, but still show signs of being a bit rusty.

Offensive Coordinator Jedd Fisch spoke about the overall state of the offense after practice yesterday. “It’s fun to see [the progress the team is making],” Fisch said. “It’s been very minimal on the mistake side and very positive on the execution side. There’s a long way to go to where we want to be, but very happy so far.”

Offensive line coach Hank Fraley also met with the media after practice yesterday and he spoke about the progress the line is making. “They’re coming out every day and all trying to get better,” Fraley said.

Fraley also spoke about graduate transfer Sunny Odogwu. “He wants perfection and that’s a good thing,” Fraley said. “We’re all striving for that and, if he messes something up, he tries not to make the mistake a second time and that’s what you want to see from the whole group.”

I shot video of four drills during yesterday’s practice. First, we have the offensive line hitting the blocking sled.

Another offensive line drill from yesterday was a medicine ball drill.

The skilled players have been going through a rotation of drills. One of the rotations is the ball control drill seen in this video.

The last drill video for today is from the one-on-ones between the DBs and the WRs.

Thanks to Thuc Nhi Nguyen of Inside SoCal for today’s post-practice interviews. First up, we have offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch.

Next, new offensive line coach Hank Fraley discusses his guys.

Finally, we have two of Coach Fraley’s guys, Kenny Lacy and Andre James.

Go Bruins!!!
