BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The LSU Tigers were greeted by another steamy, brutally hot south Louisiana morning for the second day of fall camp. And it became apparent very quickly that offensive coordinator Cam Cameron had no interest in the media capturing what the Tigers were working on.
Cameron quickly requested that cameras be turned off, as junior quarterback Brandon Harris and the offense worked through specific drills. Cameron first strolled over to head coach Les Miles to pass along his request, which was quickly carried out. The Tigers weren't working against a defense per se, but still the formations and perhaps cadences were things Cameron did not want captured or shared. Video of anything offensive oriented was not allowed during the media's brief stay, not even running backs shuffling through and around mats.
However, we did see senior kicker Colby Delahoussaye kicking field goals. Delahoussaye doesn't appear to be hampered physically from his recent, extremely scary car crash in Wisconsin, hitting tries from some nice distances. He is the most experienced kicker returning, as Trent Domingue recently transferred to the Texas Longhorns.
True freshman Devin White from North Webster High School continues to practice with the veterans at linebacker, hardly seeming intimidated by the situation. White is working alongside seniors like Kendell Beckwith and Duke Riley, even talking a little smack to them during drills. At 6'1, 255 pounds, White appears to be a piece of iron more than ready to hit SEC caliber running backs. It's a bit scary to think this young man was playing prep football last fall.
As new defensive coordinator Dave Aranda worked with the defensive backs, some playful banter then ensued. Senior corner Tre'Davious White had no problem catching the pass thrown his way in individual drills, but then sophomore Kevin Toliver II wasn't as smooth, juggling his reception. "Oh my God! Oh my God, are you serious??!," someone teased. "My hands are wet," Toliver responded, "because they're sweaty."
Things then got worse for junior Ed Paris and sophomore Donte Jackson, who flat out dropped passes thrown in their direction. "No more," Paris joked mercifully, "Turn the cameras off."
And with that, the theme of the morning was complete.
