WATCH: First day of practice with pads included some big hits

This looked fun, for the defense, at least.

Texas Sports

The start of football season is yet another day closer and to celebrate, the Longhorns threw the pads on for the first time this summer and he sights and sounds of the collisions certainly lived up to hype and talks of a much more physically imposing Texas team.

Though the offense managed to break through the line a few times, it was the defense that dominated in the above highlight, included a vicious hit by Edwin Freeman at the 0:45 mark. If nothing else, there seemed to be that extra bit of intensity needed to take a step forward next season.

Anybody want to volunteer to be the running back in this drill?
