Fall camp for Notre Dame football came to an end on Friday. The work is done. Preparation for the 2018 football season is complete. Now it’s time for the Fighting Irish football team to focus all of their attention on the season-opening matchup on Sept. 1 with the Michigan Wolverines.
On Sunday, Notre Dame released some footage from the final scrimmage inside Notre Dame Stadium. Here is a look at what took place.
The highlights open up with quarterback Brandon Wimbush throwing a dart to wide receiver Chris Finke.
Safety Patrick Pelini is seen in the following clip making a play on the ball in the air.
The third clip is of safety Nicco Fertitta, who laid a big hit on wide receiver Kevin Austin, which forced a fumble.
Tight end Cole Kmet is seen going up for a miss, but it was safety Devin Studstill who came in to jar the ball loose and force an incompletion.
Quarterback Ian Book connects with wide receiver Kevin Austin in the next clip.
Wide receiver Chase Claypool is seen laying a block on the opposition and nearly de-cleating the defender.
Running back Avery Davis makes a catch, avoids the tackle by linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, and does the same thing to linebacker Asmar Bilal.
Wide receiver Chase Claypool catches a deep ball, as he is being covered by cornerback Troy Pride Jr.
Wide receiver Miles Boykin snags a catch in the end zone over cornerback Julian Love.
Wide receiver Kevin Austin returns to the film and makes another catch, this one just over the outstretched hand of safety Nicco Fertitta.
The final clip is another long catch by wide receiver Chase Claypool, but this time he is seen beating safety Nick Coleman.
