Wake Up Sprinting: Private Practice

Posted Aug 21, 2014

Casey Phillips brings you everything you need to know from the final day of St. Louis Rams Bud Light Training Camp presented by Dr Pepper.

Good morning, Rams fam.

Another year of #RamsCamp is officially in the books and for those of you who have followed the team in recent years, you know the final day of camp brings plenty of surprises. The most notable of these surprises would be the dizzy bat race for the rookies. In short, rookies have to spin several times around the bat and run while veterans do everything in their power to make that task more difficult. No one really knows the end game other than laughing at the rooks until they fall over, but that seems to be sufficient. Stay tuned for the video chronicling this challenge later today.


Before that fun and frivolity, there actually was some football played. My partner Myles Simmons has you covered with the practice recap covering everything you need to know from the final practice of camp, including information on the impending roster cuts.


I noticed Brian Quick spends ample time with the JUGS machine after every single practice. I also thought it looked pretty fun. So he was kind enough to teach me the proper technique and of course lend me his helmet to ensure I didn't die trying this drill. Watch the video below to see how I stack up against the AFROS.

P.S. Brian Quick is an awesome teacher.
