As Nebraska continues its spring football practice, head coach Scott Frost took time to visit with the media on Monday. Most of the questions centered around Nebraska’s scrimmage last Friday. Frost said the scrimmage lasted for 120-130 plays. He told the media that he was very pleased with the effort that was put forth on Friday. While there are plenty of things that need to show improvement, the coach said he was pleased with what he saw on Friday.
Coach Frost spoke highly of the play at the quarterback position. Frost said that he feels starter Adrian Martinez is “in a good place mentally right now. I think he’s more comfortable, playing with a lot more confidence.” As those behind Martinez continue to compete for a backup spot, Frost said Logan Smothers had his best practice as a Husker, Matt Masker has a good understanding of the offense, and freshman Heinrich Haarberg continues to impress with his athletic ability.
One group that Frost was very pleased with on Friday was the wide receivers.
Nebraska will hold its April 17 practice at Memorial Stadium and open it to the public. The Huskers annual red/white spring game is scheduled for May 1st. Log on to huskers.com for ticket information.
