Highlights: After focusing on the defensive half of the field Monday, I spent more time watching the offense today, and was really impressed by Josh Huff. He had a breakaway run on one of the first reps of the day, returned a kickoff for a touchdown and caught scoring passes from Marcus Mariota both in seven-on-seven and team drills. … B.J. Kelley had a pancake block in space to spring one of Huff's touchdowns. De'Anthony Thomas scored a rushing touchdown thanks to a pancake at the line by Mana Greig before splitting down-field blocks by Keanon Lowe and Ayele Forde, and Lowe had another block late in the day to spring another Huff touchdown. …
The scout-team quarterbacks are obviously putting the ball in the air a lot as they mimic Cal's offense, and today Taylor Alie completed a scoring pass over the top of the secondary. … Jake Rodrigues made a really tough throw in team drills, scrambling to his left and throwing back to the middle of the field for a touchdown to Chance Allen, and Jeff Lockie put some nice touch on a TD pass to Johnny Mundt.

It was last week, during a long walk on the Oakway Golf Course near his apartment, when Josh Huff stopped at the No. 4 green, laid down and looked to the night sky.
"I saw the stars," Huff said. "And it took me back to my childhood."
