Check out our interview with Aggie sophomore setter Jennah DeVries. Jennah returns for her sophomore season as the only setter on the team with game time experience. The Aggies will be breaking in a pair of freshmen, Lilly Wolfe and Sierra Whitaker. Coach Jordan told Sun-News reporter Jason Groves on Saturday that as of now he is undecided whether they will continue to run the 6-2 system (utilizing two setters) or switch back to the 5-1 system which they ran while Jackie Choi played at setter. Whatever system the Aggie settle on, there is one thing for certain... Jennah DeVries will be on the court.
We've got a few photos from yesterday's second day of two-a-day practices. We stopped by the afternoon session for a little over an hour. We've been to three practices and one player that has stood out each time is wide receiver Darrius Preston. We're going to go out on a limb and say that Preston will make at least one big play a game.
We made this comment back in the spring and we'll make it again. If you haven't been to an Aggie practice you need to go. Even if it's only to watch Aggie secondary coach Mike Rutenberg. Coach Rutenberg is probably one of the most vocal coaches you will ever see and he's always talking (and by talking we mean yelling) to his players whether it's a kudos or the proverbial smack upside the head. He's be the perfect candidate for an NFL Films style mic'd up session.
