DEMOPOLIS &8212; Rain threatened and altered, but failed to prevent the Tigers&8217; weekly practice Tuesday. With a slightly adjusted workout schedule, the team met at its usual evening time.

Causey also reported the squad&8217;s physical condition is noticeably better than this time last off-season.

Causey and his staff also used Tuesday&8217;s session to get some players repetitions at unfamiliar positions.

According to Causey, senior Morgan LeCroy, who is reportedly coming back strong following a leg injury, is also helping the offensive line.

The workout also gave the offense a chance to work the passing game a little more, providing Causey yet another look at incumbent starting quarterback Rick Boone.

Causey, who is high on Boone&8217;s ability, said his senior signal caller is still prone to occasional mishaps that prevent him from maximizing his potential.

Overall, Causey reported being pleased with the practice session, but expressed that his squad still has a great deal of work to do as the summer wears on.

The Tigers will have another full team practice Tuesday before traveling to Jackson for a seven-on-seven contest Thursday, June 26.
