Auburn spring football: Holland's absence due to class puts him behind AUBURN ― In teaching his 4-2-5 scheme to a thin corps of linebackers,China Jerseys, Auburn defensive coordinator Ellis Johnson is coping with a relative lack of experience, making the regular absence of Jake Holland an additional obstacle.
Holland, who will be a senior in the fall and is by far the most experienced returning linebacker for the Tigers, has missed Wednesday practices and some meetings due to a required class for his building science curriculum, which is only offered in the morning. “We’ve got to get it to where we don’t have guys missing meetings in classes,” Johnson said. “That’s very important, that’s why they’re here. But when the game’s over on Saturday, nobody asks you what classes they went to the week before. “We’ve got to get it to where they’re going to be on the practice field, they’re going to be in the film sessions,Cheap Nfl Jerseys, and they’re going to be there on Saturday ready to play winning football in the Southeastern Conference. He’s been hampered quite a bit. I’ve told him somebody’s going to have to address it to have a shot to really be competitive for that top job,NFL Jerseys Online.” Holland was not lined up as part of the first two defensive groups during Friday’s “pace” drill against the offense.
Instead, Cassanova McKinzy and Kris Frost worked with the first group, and Chris Landrum and LaDarius Owens were the second group. The lesser reps in the spring should not be a major hurdle to Holland, who made 73 tackles last season, though any lost time is important. He has been working at both the middle and weakside linebacker positions through the first nine spring practices, and though the 4-2-5 differs from the traditional 4-3, he feels at ease learning both spots. “It’s the same way with this defense. It’s just, the Will, he can extend out on a detached receiver. But the Mike will still stay in the box,” Holland said earlier in the spring.
“At practices, tempo has been super-fast. That’s something that I think is really good for us, it gets our tempo going, really makes practice fun. Almost seems like practice goes by faster with that tempo. We’re learning, we’re making strides in that process, and I’m really liking the spring.” Johnson said Holland’s playing experience is helping him overcome what he’s losing in the film and meeting rooms. “Thank goodness he’s a senior and not a freshman, because (with his) experience and knowledge, he can kind of work through it a lot easier than a kid who never had any exposure to football,” Johnson said. “So it’s been a strain on him and hopefully we can rectify all of that before the fall. “It can’t help but affect a player.
He’s missing a lot of meeting time and film study, and I think that can hamper your progress as much as anything. His level of experience and knowledge with football, and the fact that he’s played for three years, that helps him overcome that, but it’s not a good situation.” With so few linebackers on the spring roster, any additional reps the lesser experienced players can get is not only to their benefit, it also brings them closer in competition with Holland. “I can see a lot of rotation in that area right now,” Johnson said,http://www.chinabestjerseysshop.com/. “We’ll see, maybe something before the end of spring practice might be better.”
