Comments Off on Inside Practice #3 With KLM

After two days in shorts, practice jerseys and helmets, the Irish moved one step closer to a full contact workout, adding shoulder pads to the mix this morning. If yesterday’s weather was great, today’s was perfect.

From a spectator’s view, these early August practices might seem a bit repetitive (though that will change when the team switches to full pads on Wednesday).

Instead of a traditional practice update, today’s feature from Fighting Irish Digital Media (@NDfidm) focuses on graduate student defensive end Kapron Lewis-Moore.

After missing the final six games of the 2011 campaign with a knee injury, KLM returns in 2012, poised to be one of Coach Kelly’s veteran leaders.

From the looks of today’s practice, that knee is back at full strength, and Lewis-Moore will be a key part of what should be a strong defensive front for the Irish.

It’s probably safe to say few people have more fun on the football field than the 6-foot-4, 306 lb. Texas native, who recently dubbed his fellow defensive linemen “Team No Abs” (More on that in the video).

If you attended any hockey, basketball or lacrosse games earlier this year, you probably saw KLM and some of his upperclassmen teammates enthusiastically cheering in the student section. Just check out the “Our Team, Our Story” video from a men’s basketball game in February.
