For this Morning Meltdown let’s take a look into some of the buzz surrounding the Arizona State Sun Devils, specifically week one, day one, of training camp and the thoughts about ASU’s tradition of tight end.
As reported by Fabian Ardaya of The State Press, there were less than ideal playing conditions and changing facilities, the ASU football team came out and opened up its annual Camp Tontozona trip in impressive fashion.
“Despite the poor conditions, there was no doubt that the Sun Devils would practice that day, redshirt senior quarterback Taylor Kelly said.
“We’ve got to get our practices in,” he said. “We’re at about 15 days until game day, so we were going to practice either way. You never know when you’re going to practice or even play in the rain, and it was good for our guys to experience.”
Offensive coordinator Mike Norvell echoed his quarterback’s sentiments when he interrupted practice to speak to the first team offense.”

“Tight end has both historically and recently been a position of strength for ASU football”, as declared by Evan Webeck of The State Press. See below for his thoughts about ASU’s tradition of tight end.
“Now, taking the stage: Kody Kohl.
The redshirt sophomore is coming into his own during fall practice, and he is leaving an impression with the coaching staff. Offensive coordinator Mike Norvell is excited to utilize his athleticism and flexibility within the offense. Tight ends coach Chip Long loves the way he has stepped up as a leader, replacing Coyle in the role.
Kohl has begun to take the majority of first-team snaps at Camp Tontozona, typically lining up in the H-back position that made Coyle such a dangerous weapon out of the backfield.”
