Little league coaches, high school players, ambitious parents … they are just three of the many groups of people who will always be interested in the answer to one question: How do the pros practice?
This video clip gives a brief glimpse into a Philadelphia Eagles defensive backs drill during this year’s training camp. Eagles DBs coach John Lovett has been in the game for over four decades, starting as a college linebacker at C.W. Post and moving up the coaching ranks from high school to the pros. Most of his career has been spent as a defensive coordinator on the major college level. Philadelphia’s assistant DBs coach is Todd Lyght, a 12-year NFL veteran cornerback with the Rams and Lions who won a Super Bowl and was named to one Pro Bowl with the “Greatest Show on Turf” Rams in 1999. Both Lovett and Lyght are in their second season with the Eagles, having come in under head coach Chip Kelly.
