Pruitt takes Fulmer's idea of designating practice time for younger players

KNOXVILLE — Jeremy Pruitt met with media for the final time ahead of playing Missouri for the final home game of the season.

Pruitt discussed designating time at the end of practice towards younger players and that he received the idea from athletics director Phillip Fulmer.

“Really, it was Coach Fulmer’s idea,” Pruitt said. “I thought it was a great idea. We’ve never done this at any of the other places I’ve been. You’re talking about 15 to 20 minutes at the end of practice and it’s for the guys who play on the scout team, and maybe our twos, it’s a chance to get extra work.

“We cut back a little bit with our first groups to allow practice time to be able to do that, and just kind of go back and focus on fundamentals. We go back and just reiterate the foundation. A lot of these guys that play on the scout team, sometimes they’re servicing somebody else, so it’s a chance to go back and seam in a little bit of a foundation so they have one moving forward.”
