ATHENS, Ohio - The Ohio University football team took part in its second practice of fall camp on Wednesday at Peden Stadium. For the second-straight day, the team practiced in helmets, but did not wear pads.
Following practice, OhioBobcats.com spoke with Bobcat linebackers Keith Moore (Columbus, Ohio), Ben Russell (Cincinnati, Ohio) and A.J. Grady Jr. (Woodbridge, Va.). All three are projected to start this season.
Moore returns as the lone starter from last year's unit. In 2012, he had a breakout season at middle linebacker as he led the team in tackles, finishing the year with 98 stops. He also earned Defensive Most Valuable Player honors in the 2012 Independence Bowl. This season, the former walk-on will move to weak side linebacker.
Both Russell and Grady will be expected to fill the void left by former Bobcats Alphonso Lewis and Jelani Woseley. Lewis earned Third Team All-Mid-American Conference honors a year ago, while Woseley led the team with four interceptions. In 2012, both Russell and Grady played in 11 games.
