The 2015 East-West Shrine Game’s week of practices is halfway complete. The West team took the field for its second practice session of the week Tuesday afternoon, at St. Petersburg High School, where some of Monday’s standouts impressed again but other players also took the spotlight, many positive but some negative.
The West team had better conditions to deal with Tuesday—at least in regards to the weather. While the sunny, warm skies were a big improvement over the pouring rain that hit the beginning of Monday afternoon’s session, players continued to have issues with slipping because of a worn-down grass field.

Of course, any player who wants to make it in the NFL will have to be able to deal with less-than-ideal conditions at the next level as well, so players are still expected to be on top of their games despite the conditions. Many of them were, including Kansas State center B.J. Finney, on Tuesday.
