Pioneers begin practice for 2013 season

(Continued)

STILLWATER, Okla. —

Even though they are still trying to find their identity, Noble said the offense ran relatively smoothly — aided by the fact that the temperatures stayed in the 70s.

“We were a little surprised by the weather because we weren’t so water dependent,” Noble said. “We could go a little bit longer without it because we weren’t dead from the heat. That helped a lot because things went a lot smoother. The more upbeat we are, the easier practice is.”

And that — along with the play of linebackers Cameron Mayberry, C.J. Citizen and safety Brooks Zimmerman — may have been the biggest surprise to Barnard.

“I felt like we had a lot of confusion,” Barnard said. “I almost wished we would have had a dress rehersal (Monday). We had some confusion, but I think effort was pretty good — particularly out of our varsity guys. I’m really pleased with the way they came out compared to last fall.”
