From the Mailbag: Tackling Technique

More from the mailbag...

@MikeInValdosta asks: "did the team focus more on fundamentals in the spring and do you expect more contact in practices this fall?"

To be fair, Mike wasn't the only one to pose this question, and he actually wanted it posed to Bryan Evans. But since Evans wasn't available, I went looking elsewhere, and got this reply from linebacker Akeem Dent.

"We're basically doing running, lifting, things like that, but when we do set out to do the drills, we go through with the blocking dummies and work on the fundamentals and the techniques, letting everyone have a chance to complete every drill. That's one thing we want to focus on this year is being able to wrap up and tackle to the ground."
