  5. VETERAN-LED BULLS JELLING WELL WITH STRONG'S STAFF March 21, 2017 By TOM ZEBOLD USF Senior Writer TAMPA, MARCH 21, 2017 – Equipped with a roster packed with potential, new head coach Charlie Strong wants to get the most out of every spring practice and the Bulls have been delivering on a daily basis. After a weeklong break, USF motored through more rapid fire play-calling on both sides of the ball during the fourth session of the spring Tuesday morning at the Morsani Complex. “We ran them a little yesterday, just to get a good sweat going,” Strong said. “For them to come out today and practice as hard as they did was really good to see.” Strong gave the Bulls glowing reviews throughout the first week of spring practice and it’s no surprise why the Bulls have jelled so well with an almost entirely new coaching staff. “We won 11 games last year, but we want more,” safety Devin Abraham said. “We know that we have to work and we have to keep pushing.” Abraham, a savvy veteran with 25 games of starting experience, is one of 14 seniors returning from the two-deep and they're driving the Bulls in the right direction. Other go-to seniors on defense include cornerback Deatrick Nichols (Miami), safety Tajee Fullwood (Tampa), and defensive linemen Deadrin Senat (Immokalee), Bruce Hector (Tampa) and Mike Love (Clearwater). Leadership on offense starts at quarterback with American Offensive Player of the Year Quinton Flowers (Miami) and it continues with running backs D’Ernest Johnson (Immokalee) and Darius Tice (Miami), linemen Cameron Ruff (Tampa) and Jeremi Hall (Atlanta), along with receivers Marquez Valdes-Scantling (St. Petersburg) and Ryeshene Bronson (Fort Myers). “It’s really good to see that leadership,” Strong said. “On the offensive side, your quarterback is your leader and our best football player.” While seniors are setting the tone, Flowers has been encouraged by what he’s seen from the whole group, even when the Bulls are off the practice field. “When I first got here, you didn’t hear guys really talk about what they did in practice,” Flowers said. “Now you see guys in the locker room competing and talking about what they did. That’s the type of team you want. That’s the type of guys you want on your team to go out and compete. They love to challenge each other.” Coaching Staff Getting Into a Groove Aside from senior leadership, Bulls fans should also get excited about the structure in place for the program. Spring practice has taken on a pro-type feel with efficient outings geared toward making every rep count under the direction of Strong’s experienced staff. “With coaches, we watch film before we come out to practice. We’ll watch film the day before the next practice,” Flowers said. “We’ll watch film before a lift. We’re always watching film and they’re always teaching us something new.” Continuity is a big plus for a coaching staff and USF has exactly that on the offensive side of the ball. Coordinator/Quarterbacks coach Sterlin Gilbert, offensive line coach Matt Mattox, receiver coach Charlie Williams and tight ends coach Justin Burke all spent last season on Strong’s staff at Texas. Before that, Gilbert and Mattox spent the previous three seasons together at different programs. “It’s going well because you look on offense, you have an offensive staff that has been together,” Strong said. "They came here and they’ve worked together.” Familiar faces are also found on a swarming defense led by new coordinator Brian Jean-Mary, who spent the past seven seasons on Strong’s staffs at Texas and Louisville. Defensive tackles coach Sean Cronin previously worked with Strong as a graduate assistant at Florida, which won two national titles during their time with the Gators. “The players, it’s easy for them to adjust because when everyone is on the same page and everybody is talking the same language, then it’s an easy adjustment for them,” Strong said. USF’s senior leaders say the team has made a smooth transition with the new coaching staff that’s creating a fun learning environment for the Bulls. “They just come in and they just feed off us,” Abraham said. “They see how good and friendly we are and they just kind of bond with us. It’s been really easy.” Notables - One of Tuesday’s top plays was made by emerging freshman receiver DeVontres Dukes (Tampa), who used his 6-feet-4 frame to snag a 30-yard jump ball in traffic from Flowers in the end zone. “I saw Dukes was still alive, still working,” Flowers said. “I just gave him a chance to make a play and that’s what he did for me.” - Flowers also delivered a perfect deep ball down the sideline that fell right into the arms of senior Marquez Valdes-Scantling, who tied for the team lead with five TD catches last year. “Marquez is awesome every day,” safety Devin Abraham said. minor injuries. Watts showcased his tight coverage skills throughout practice Tuesday and broke up a potential touchdown pass in the end zone. - USF continues its three-practice run this week on Thursday morning at the Morsani Complex.

  10. TAMPA, MARCH 8, 2017 – Under new head coach Charlie Strong, USF wants to make sure it takes care of business on the defensive side of the ball and business has been brisk so far this spring. Day 2 of spring practice at the Morsani Complex saw USF’s veteran defense make game-changing plays during 7-on-7 drills. Senior strong safety Devin Abraham (Tarpon Springs) got things rolling with a pick-6 before senior cornerback Deatrick Nichols got in front of a receiver on a slant pattern for an easy interception. Abraham and Nichols are two of nine returning starters on defense from last year’s 11-2 team and they’re part of a secondary that’s combined for 99 total starts. As a whole, USF’s defense returns seven of its top nine tacklers from last season, six players that accounted for 11 of the Bull's 15 interceptions, and 23 lettermen. All of that is music to the ears of new coordinator Brian Jean-Mary, an 18-year coaching veteran. “I think it’s unbelievable,” Jean-Mary said. “Usually when you come in and it’s a new coaching staff, that’s one of the things you don’t have. I always look at it like there’s no substitute for playing experience.” Link to rest of report
  11. BULLS BRING THE TOUGHNESS IN FULL PADS By TOM ZEBOLD USF Senior Writer TAMPA, MARCH 10, 2017 – Charlie Strong’s bulked-up Bulls put on a show during the first spring practice in full pads on Friday morning. “I just loved the energy and the enthusiasm,” Strong said. “We did bang it up some and really had some good drill work.” Pads popped at a frequent pace during a two-and-a-half hour physcical workout at the Morsani Complex that produced a plethora of highlight-reel hits. Junior linebacker Danny Thomas (Fort Lauderdale) made thunderous stops on back-to-back plays during team work, throwing a ball-carrier for a loss on one sequence. Freshman Elijah Mack (Punta Gorda, Fla.) helped the running backs return the favor by plowing through defenders near the line on the way to a long gain and then running over a linebacker. Thomas (6-1, 224) and Mack (6-0, 215) are two prime examples of what the Bulls have been doing in offseason conditioning. Both have put on at least nine pounds, joining a healthy list of players that are making the most of new head strength coach Pat Moorer’s detailed program. “You always talk about breaking your program down into five phases,” Strong said. “Phase 1 was winter conditioning. You want to reshape and redefine their bodies, and a lot of guys did.” It certainly showed during the early part of Friday’s practice. With the team surrounding the action, players brought tremendous energy during ferocious 1-on-1 and 3-on-3 drills that resembled Royal Rumble wrestling. “(Strong) told us it was going to be physical, so we came out with the mindset of, ‘We’re going to do a lot of hitting,’” running back Darius Ticesaid. “We’ve got a week to rest and then we’ll come back and do some more hitting. We’re ready for it.” Bulls Go on Spring Break USF will have a week to rest up from Friday’s physical practice during the university's spring break. The Bulls get back to work on Tuesday, March 21, the first of an 11-practice run before the spring game at Corbett Stadium on Saturday, April 15. “When we come back from break, we’ll be able to get back and really get a rhythm going, so we can be consistent and improve each and every day,” Strong said. Healthy Tice Happy to Be Back Darius Tice, one of USF’s hardest workers, is valuing each practice rep even more now that he’s got a second chance at his senior season. The bruising 210-pound back has looked smooth running the ball this spring after being granted a medical hardship waiver by the NCAA. Tice broke his ankle early last season against Florida State and said he’s been moving around for the past six months. “Things are starting to come back naturally for me,” said Tice after running for a 35-yard touchdown Friday. Tice needs 126 rushing yards to reach 1,000 in his career at USF, but he’s extra focused on the bigger picture since returning to action as a veteran leader. “It’s almost like I’ve got another chance at life,” he said. “I look at things differently and I approach every situation like it’s my last." Despite losing Marlon Mack to the NFL, USF is still loaded at running back and Strong is taking a wise approach to working Tice back into the rotation. “Knowing he’s coming off an injury, you want to make sure you protect him,” Strong said. “He needs the work and we’re giving him a chance to move around. He looks pretty good running the football.” Notables - Strong was happy with USF’s work ethic during the first three practices of the spring. “I’ve been very pleased, not only with this week but just how they’ve been working since we’ve been here,” he said. “They come in, they go about it the right way and they’re focused. They’re knowing they need to work and how hard they need to work.” - Freshman safety Craig Watts (St. Petersburg) is getting reps at cornerback while Ronnie Hoggins (Tarpon Springs, Fla.) and Mazzi Wilkins (Tampa) rehab minor injuries. “When those guys get back, then we’ll put him back at his spot,” Strong said. - Strong confirmed another position switch Friday. Junior Jimmy Bayes (Immokalee, Fla.) has moved from the defensive end to linebacker. “Bayes is going to be a backer and that’s where he’s going to work,” Strong said. - Quarterback Quinton Flowers connected with senior receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling (St. Petersburg) for a 45-yard touchdown in the second half of practice Friday. Sophomore Darnell Salomon (Miami) showed why the future is bright for USF at receiver with a 70-yard touchdown catch during 11-on-11 work. USF finished the 2016 season with a school record 11 wins following the program’s fifth-ever bowl victory in the Birmingham Bowl. The Bulls’ 11-2 record marked the fifth-best winning percentage in FBS football in 2016 and one of just 11 teams to reach 11 wins. USF set nearly 40 team and individual records in 2016, including team records for total yards (6,650), rushing yards (3,714), touchdowns (77) and scoring (569). Junior quarterback Quinton Flowers was named the American Conference Offensive Player of the Year and led a school-record 10 players named to the all-conference team, six of which, including Flowers, will return in 2017.

  13. By TOM ZEBOLD USF Senior Writer TAMPA, MARCH 6, 2017 – Starting quarterback Quinton Flowers has a fond memory of the first time new head coach Charlie Strong first addressed the Bulls as a team after the Birmingham Bowl victory over South Carolina. “He said it was a good season, but it wasn’t good enough. We have to win championships, not just bowl games,” Flowers said. “The expectations are real high for the whole team… I like a coach that coaches me and wants to win, a competitive coach.” Since the #BullStrong era of USF Football began, players have been trying to elevate their game every day and it was apparent Monday morning. Feeding off the energy of the new coaching staff, motivated USF attacked rapid-fire reps with high energy during an intense first of 15 spring practices at the Morsani Complex. “More than anything, it was a chance for us, as a new coaching staff, just to get around the players,” Strong said. “I just loved their overall attitude and how hard they worked today. We were going really fast and it was more of them just locking in and staying focused.” Attention to detail is something USF did well last season on the way to breaking the program’s season wins record with 11. Players say the Bulls are mentally locked in even more since Strong, a two-time national championship-winning coordinator at Florida, first stepped on campus as USF’s new leading man. Rest of article
