Vandals trying to plug holes on defense


Late last week the Idaho Vandals ratcheted things up a notch when they added full pads to their spring workouts and now they’re just about to go full throttle as the spring nears the mid-way point.

On the defensive side for the Vandals, they have a ton to replace from a senior class that has left a ton of holes. Jordan Grabski and Armond Hawkins have returned to the field after being nicked up last season while running back Denzal Brantley has moved from running back to safety to try to patch some of those glaring holes.

Defensive Coordinator Mike Breske spoke of some of the players who have impressed thus far in spring on the defensive side of the ball.

"Aikeem Coleman, double-A, Arie Anderson are really hustling and doing a good job,” said Breske. “Zach Cable is right up in there too so we're getting some good explosion out of those three and Denzal Brantley who has moved from running back to the safety position, working the field safety is in a learning curve right now but it showing some greatness right now and we're excited."

The Vandals will continue spring practice with spring ball culminating with the Annual Silver and Gold Game Friday, April 28 at 6:00p.m. from the Kibbie Dome.
