As the anticipation for the football season continues to build, Coach Prime’s Buffaloes are making waves with the impressive progress of their near-fully rebuilt roster. Each position group has worked to build chemistry with their running mates, with both the offensive and defensive trenches being no exception. Both units are crucial backbones to any football team, and the strides made by the Colorado trenches set an optimistic tone for the regular season campaign that begins in 25 days.
A key aspect of the O-Line’s continuous improvement has been their ability to read and react on the fly. Coach Bill O’Boyle has trained his guys to adapt to the different play schemes and defensive strategies that are being thrown their way. The player’s understanding of their assignments has shown significant growth.
As training camp has begun to ramp up, new CU defensive line coaches Sal Sunseri and Nick Williams have established a renewed focus on skill development and teamwork. That commitment is evident, as the D-Line has begun to outshine the offense after a rough patch during the first couple of days of practicing. After a successful practice, Uncle Neely pulled defensive lineman Bishop Thomas to see how he feels about his unit.
Thomas stated, “…We’re starting to pick up on each other’s habits. Starting to understand each other. We know who we’re playing with — and who we’re playing against. So now we can continue moving faster and faster until we’re unstoppable.” After conversing with Uncle Neely for a bit, he concluded the interview with true Colorado Buffalo passion. “I was born ready.”
