Dick Harmon: With fall camp around the corner, BYU QB Taysom Hill soaking in last days of golf
Take the 15 spring practices and the volunteer workouts since, and Hill says he has noticed an increase in his skill and comfort in running the offense. “It’s also given us the opportunity to call our own plays, so we have to be really familiar with the things we’re doing and we are pushing the tempo. It’s been really good.”
Another thing is the return of key injured players, like tackle Ryker Mathews and receiver Cody Hoffman. “They weren’t there in spring, neither was JD. This time has been huge for them so come Aug. 2 it isn’t a wake-up call."
Hill praised receiver Mitch Mathews, a 6-6 playmaker, but he voluntarily singled out receiver Ross Apo, who was hampered by injury last spring and summer.
“This is the hardest I’ve ever seen Ross work as well. Granted, he had a shoulder injury last offseason and was hampered, but he’s looking good, as is Hoffman. I’ve got a bevy of great guys to throw to and I’m looking forward to it.”
And he’ll get to it soon enough. For now, its time to swing that Ping G-20 driver and Eye-10 irons.
That’s what good quarterbacks do.
