Practice blog: March 3 (Updated)

Army wide receivers coach Andy Guyader talked.

The six players, who stayed after practice, listened. Army’s wide receiving corps is getting thin.

Sophomore Austin Barr is the most experienced out of the group.

Junior Mark Allen played special teams last season.

Sophomore Jake Arbanas, who was recruited as a tight end by former coach Stan Brock, is making the move from the defensive side of the ball.

Freshman Kyler Martin, who played middle linebacker last season, may have the most upside.

Freshman Malcolm Brown, who made five starts at slotback and rushed for 112 yards, is giving wide receiver a try.

Freshman Justin Allen rounds out the group.

Missing in Action at practice were sophomore receiver Davyd Brooks, who figured to receive a lot of reps this spring, and George Jordan, who was injured to start the spring.

Slotbacks Brian Austin, a freshman, and Emerson Follet, a senior and first-year player, lined up wide on some plays.

Quarterback Trent Steelman showed he could play in pain throughout his freshman season. Steelman was gutting it out in practice, favoring his left leg.Steelman looked pretty good passing the ball. He connected on 20-yard pass across the middle to Martin and threw a bullet, which Mark Allen hauled in.

Sophomores Max Jenkins and Jimmy Reitter was the only other quarterbacks taking snaps.

Returning starter Andrew Rodriguez, sophomores Justin Schaaf, Billy Prosko and Chad Littlejohn and freshman Zach Watts were working with whip linebacker coach Robert Lyles.

Freshman Chris Boldt boomed a nice punt. Can he provide enough competition to incumbent junior Jonathan Bulls?

Army coach Rich Ellerson rushed off to see his son, Andrew, play for James I. O’Neill in a Section 9 Class B semifinal at Marlboro after practice.

Update: See below. Brooks says he’ll be back at practice Friday.
