While Coach Neuheisel is not ready to make a depth chart, the final two minutes of practice are reserved for a two minute drill with only one opportunity per position. It was QB John Wolford's turn to run offense today for the final period.

Newly acquired WR Freddie Martino was at practice, but did not participate.

The NSMA announced its annual awards on Tuesday, with Hotshots play-by-play broadcaster Jeff Munn receiving the Arizona Broadcaster of the Year Award for his work with Arizona State University.

A member of The Alliance of American Football, The Arizona Hotshots are led by an experienced professional coaching staff and front office. The Hotshots feature Arizona native Rick Neuheisel as head coach and long-time NFL front office executive Phil Savage as General Manager.

The Arizona Hotshots team headquarters while in training camp in San Antonio will be the Holiday Inn Riverwalk in San Antonio with practices being conducted at Southwest High School.


Coach Rick Neuheisel on joint practice with with Orlando team tomorrow: "More of the same. Great effort, great technique work. A fundamental understanding of what we're trying to get done schematically on both sides of the ball. We all know there's going to be a competitive fervor in the air. It's just the nature of the beast in this game. But Coach (Steve) Spurrier and I are close friends and we'll get the tempo we want. You've been running the same things against one another, and also it gives you some idea of how to set things up against other people. It's just a much more realistic look for us as evaluators as well."

WR Corey Willis on being surprised by his coach and teammates for honoring that he became a dad: "I was definitely surprised. It's my first child so I haven't experienced the family with the football team. I'm surprised but I expected it. Ever since Day 1 Coach Neuheisel has made it just a big family."
