Kent State football coach Darrell Hazell called Monday’s two-hour morning session that was the Flashes’ first full-pad session of spring camp “the best practice yet.”
“This was a great practice for the first day of pads,” the second-year coach said. “The energy level was outstanding. Guys were running around with some enthusiasm, it was really good. Especially for a Monday practice after the weekend? They were sharp.”
Players who really caught the eye of Hazell Monday at Dix Stadium were sophomore running back Trayion Durham, senior quarterback Spencer Keith and the team’s emerging wide receiving corps.
“I saw Trayion pop a few runs (running loose for two touchdowns near the end of practice) and looked pretty good,” Hazell said. “I thought Spencer did a good job for the most part and the receivers are starting to take a step, which is good to see.”
