BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - Tuesday morning officially marked the start of the second week of fall camp for the UAB football team. The Blazers practiced for just over two hours at the UAB Football Practice Facility.

After practice, offensive coordinator Richard Owens spoke with the media. Owens spoke on the offense's progression a week into camp.

"We continue to work, we continue to work hard," Owens stated. "Yesterday was a tough practice for us. The guys have fought and pushed through it. They are starting to get better. We are continuing to grow as a team."

The Blazers owned one of the top aerial attacks in Conference USA in 2012, ranking third in the conference behind Marshall and Houston with 308.8 yards per game through the air. This season, UAB will be looking to cement itself as one of the top offenses in the league.

"Our guys continue to work," Owens commented. "There seems to be a nice chemistry that is starting to form there. These guys take pride in it and they work at it. They are getting better."

The Green and Gold will be back on the field Wednesday morning in their first of two practice sessions.
