Holden Geriner ‘stood out’ in last week’s drills
As the Auburn Tigers prepare to go through the final two weeks of spring practice, head coach Hugh Freeze met with the media to provide an update on how his team has performed in drills.
To the delight of many Auburn fans, Freeze shared that Auburn’s quarterbacks have improved over the last week.
“We got better last week,” Freeze said Monday. “I thought we improved most of the week, particularly Monday and Wednesday.”
In addition to saying that the quarterback position has improved over the last week, he says that one quarterback in particular truly impressed him. It happens to be a candidate that appeared to be a dark horse for the starting quarterback role when spring practice began.
Redshirt Freshman Holden Geriner’s high school scouting report was filled with positive notes including “quick release, sound decision making, and the ability to throw the ball deep.” It appears that in addition to his skillset, he has truly grasped the concept of Auburn’s new offensive system.
“I thought (Geriner) really stood out all week with his improvement and his play,” Freeze said. “Not that the others didn’t improve, but I thought his grasp of what we were trying to do, he was impressive with it last week.”
Freeze also noted that incumbent starter Robby Ashford was limited in practice last week, stating that he nursed a sore shoulder which caused him to not throw much on either Wednesday or Friday of last week.
The Tigers will continue their spring exercises until Saturday, April 8, when the annual A-Day concludes the spring period.
