CORAL GABLES – The University of Miami football team rose early on Sunday morning to complete a 45-minute walkthrough in preparation for the final scrimmage and day of training camp.

The short session featured skeleton, special teams and two-minute drill.  The individual highlight came on the first two snaps when Lou Groza Award candidate Matt Bosher boomed consecutive back-to-back 50 yard punts.

RB Damion Berry and TE Chase Ford also deserve kudos for each reeling in tough catches over the middle and getting first downs during the two-minute drill.

For the players it was reprieve from the heat and sun that been a constant companion through training camp.  With a light Sunday ahead, the players will have time to relax and rest prior to Monday night’s scrimmage.

The scrimmage will begin at 5 p.m. and is closed to the media and public. will have photos, stats and post-scrimmage interviews after the Canes wrap up the full-contact workout.

The scrimmage will also signify the official end of Training Camp in 2010.  Players will have some time off before the fall academic semester begins on Wednesday, Aug. 25.
