CAMP CONFIDENTIAL

Sunday, August 07, 2005 - Times Picayune

Temperature: 75 degrees
Heat index: 83 degrees

Paid attendance: 10,282

IN THE SPOTLIGHT

Right cornerback: Despite skipping the spring coaching sessions, Fakhir Brown has established himself as the starter with a strong camp. He has been one of the most consistent performers on the defense. Behind him, Fred Thomas also is having a solid camp. Thomas began last season as the starter before Brown won the job, so the team has two experienced options. Rookie Dwight Ellick has terrific speed and could develop into a decent prospect if the Saints want to keep him on the practice squad.

No. | Player | Ht. | Wt. | Exp.

35 | Fakhir Brown | 5-11 | 192 | 6

22 | Fred Thomas | 5-9 | 185 | 10

38 | Dwight Ellick | 5-10 | 182 | R

GET TO KNOW:

Keron Henry

Position: Wide receiver

Height, weight: 6-1, 218

Experience: Rookie

Age: 22

College: Connecticut

Hometown: Brooklyn, N.Y.

Did you know: Henry was graduated from Connecticut with a double major in computer science and electrical engineering and a minor in mathematics. He attended Brooklyn Technical High School. . . . He and Saints rookie linebacker Alfred Fincher were part of the Huskies' rise to prominence the past four years. UConn went 8-4 last season, its first as a Division I-A school. . . . Henry began his college career as a quarterback but was replaced in 2002 by Dan Orlovsky, who was drafted in April by the Detroit Lions. . . . Henry was born in Guyana before moving to the U.S. as an infant.

Henry says: "I really enjoyed math and science in high school, and computers deal a lot with math and science. . . . Plus, I hear the money's not too bad." -- Henry on his choice of college majors.


WHO'S HOT:

AARON BROOKS

Coaches have been praising Brooks' performance since the winter conditioning program and spring practice sessions. Heading into his fifth season as the Saints' starter, Brooks has looked crisp and fluid throughout camp. Saturday night was no exception. Brooks completed all three passes he attempted during the team scrimmage, and before that he consistently was on target during every throwing drill.

WHO'S NOT:

JASON CRAFT

The veteran cornerback couldn't make the trip because he came down with the flu and was suffering from an ear infection.

PLAYS OF THE DAY:

Backup kicker Nate Fikse made both of his field-goal attempts, a 47-yarder and a 46-yarder. . . . Cornerback Fred Booker snatched an interception after tight end Zachary Hilton couldn't reel in a pass. . . . Quarterback Adrian McPherson scrambled for a first down on third-and-5.

QUOTE OF THE DAY:

"It was a screen pass, but I saw the end coming around the corner. . . . Man, I wish I didn't have a red jersey on, because I wanted to go all the way." -- McPherson on his first-down scramble.

INJURY REPORT

Pos. | Player | Injury

LB | James Allen | knee

LB | Roger Knight | knee

CB | Jason Craft | flu

TE | Shad Meier | knee

OL | Spencer Folau | shoulder

"Backup kicker Nate Fikse made both of his field-goal attempts, a 47-yarder and a 46-yarder. . . "

That's pretty impressive.

Did any of the tightends make an impression during the scrimmage to those that were in attendance?

RE: CB, Who

I see... lol.

Yea just by me look at his completed passes, it didn't look that impressive. But since you mentioned it was the receivers fault, much more encouraging news on A-Mac. Thanks for the added info.

RE: Re: CB, Who

Who's Hot:

I've been reading a lot of the reviews of other Saints' fan who attended the scrimmage, and it seems the name that comes up the most is Zach Hilton. Everyone who has given their summary of the event stated that he was outstanding. That's great to hear because we desperately need a big physical player that will make an impact in the redzone. Someone also stated Gardner juked the crap out of Mike for a touchdown.


Who's Not:

All of the free agent receivers... it wasn't like they were going to make the team anyways.
