J.W. Walsh learning to live with more snaps in practice
Since arriving at OSU, J.W. Walsh has had to make the most of limited practice reps.
Last year, while redshirting, he lagged behind Brandon Weeden and Clint Chelf, grabbing whatever piece of the practice pie he could claim. Then after losing the battle to replace Weeden in the spring, Walsh was relegated to leftovers again, especially with starter Wes Lunt needing all the work he could get as a true freshman.
The injury to Lunt changed that.
Back at work following Saturday’s win over Louisiana-Lafayette, Walsh has commanded the majority of the reps, working to gain more comfort in the offense in the event Lunt isn’t back for next week’s game againstTexas.
And he’s felt it.
“My body’s more exhausted,” Walsh said.
And it never felt so good.
“To be able to get this many reps was a lot of fun,” he said. “You have to prepare your body to be able to come out and throw that many balls and handle that many reps.”
