Neil Callaway pleased with UAB defense

UAB head coach Neil Callaway seemed pleased with the defense following the Blazer’s final scrimmage.

Callaway said, “Defensively, I saw more enthusiasm, more oneness, and more guys playing hard than I’ve seen in a long time, so I’m happy.”

“I think it was obvious when we first started during the drive the defense really took it to the offense, about as good a whopping our defense put on the offense in a while. But then we get into the situation stuff, overtime and +10, and it kind of flip-flopped. The defense could stop the offense.”

Callaway expects to release the 2-deep depth chart on Monday.

"I'd like to wait until (Monday). We met as a staff briefly (today). I want to get back in there and kind of go over everybody to make sure we're all on the same page. We'll announce our whole depth chart really, special teams included, who will be the punt returner and kickoff returner and all that, (on Monday)."

UAB hosts Florida Atlantic on Thursday night, September 2nd.
