The team is closer to naming a starter, coach Geoff Collins said.
The redshirt-senior offensive lineman aspired to be like former Temple offensive lineman Wayne Tribue and others when he was younger.
The Owls ended Thursday's practice with a slip-and-slide, water balloon fight and water ice.
As coach Geoff Collins stresses position flexibility, the redshirt-senior offensive lineman has asked his teammates for advice on playing defensive tackle.
The redshirt-senior cornerback is one of three starters this season returning to the Owls defensive backfield.
Senior Austin Jones and sophomore Aaron Boumerhi are in a ‘dead heat,’ tight ends and special teams coach Ed Foley said.
The redshirt freshman is the Owls' tallest defensive lineman.
The freshman early enrollee de-committed from the University of Miami in 2015 and is battling for the starting quarterback spot.
The Owls’ coach said all four quarterbacks competing for the starting spot have taken over scrimmages.
Temple lost three starting linebackers and Shaun Bradley could fill one of those spots this season.
