Houston, Texas - Houston Football was back at practice on Thursday and hosted a two-hour workout in shells (helmets, shoulder pads and shorts) on the practice fields of the UH Athletics/Alumni facility.

The team worked heavily on special teams, including extensive work on the kick-coverage units. Starting punter Richie Leone also got some work in and continued to look consistent this spring. Both Leone and place kicker Matt Hogan have been steady through 10 workouts and should continue to be a strength as the team heads into the fall.

The club also got some situational 7-on-7 work in and a number of Cougars stood out, including Aaron Johnson who made a few nice grabs after converting back to wide receiver. A former quarterback in high school, Johnson made a reaching grab near the sideline and showed the type of consistency catching the football that quarterbacks love.

Bram Kohlhausen also looked consistent and hit Casey Martin on a pair of TD throws down the middle on back-to-back plays. Cougar fans will want to get familiar with Martin. The redshirt freshman has been an impact player this spring and has seen time rotating with a large group of punt returners as well.

In the team portion of today's practice the play of the afternoon came from a pair of defensive linemen. Zeke Riser made an athletic play to bat a David Piland pass into the air and Dominic Miller raced over to complete the interception. The whistle then blew the play dead, but Miller fought away from an offensive lineman anyway and raced towards paydirt. We'll call it a "Pick-6" for Big Dom!

 

 

Despite those athletic plays from Riser and Miller, Piland really came on today. The redshirt sophomore zipped a pair of passes to Daniel Spencer over the middle and showed solid athleticism rolling out and firing a strike to Mark Roberts for a 60-yard score. Each of the quarterbacks is starting to get comfortable in the offense and that created a fun back-and-forth tussle between the offense and defense.

Not to be outdone, Phillip Steward and the defense retaliated with a sack of Kohlhausen and Kelvin King had a sack on Crawford Jones to keep the competition near even by the end of the afternoon.

Houston will be off Friday, but returns to action on Saturday with a scrimmage at Robertson Stadium at 10 a.m. In addition, fans are encouraged to bring their children (Kindergarten - 8th grade) to participate in the Cougar Youth Experience. This event is free and allows children to learn football directly from the Houston student-athletes and coaches.

We also had a chance to catch up with Tyron Carrier at practice. The former Cougar standout is already sprinting following off-season knee surgery and will go through workouts with NFL teams later this summer.
