SC State Practice Brief: Bulldogs Open Spring Drills

ORANGEBURG, SC – The South Carolina State football team began preparing for its 12-game 2014 schedule Wednesday morning with the first of 15 spring workouts. Approximately 75 players were in attendance for the 6:30 a.m. drill, which was conducted in shorts and helmets. “It’s perfect football weather and it’s always fun to see the new guys going and see the changeover from one year to another,” said SC State head coach Buddy Pough. “We are pretty healthy from last season despite having a couple of guys out from surgeries during the offseason, but overall we are in pretty good shape.” The spring schedule will include practices on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 6:30 a.m., along two Saturday scrimmages. The Bulldogs will culminate drills Apr. 12 with their annual Garnet and Blue contest. “This is a playoff team and the attitudes of players are good, after coming off a different season as oppose to last season during this time” Pough added with enthusiasm. “I think we have great group guys in both places with coaches and players and I am excited to see how things turn out.” The Bulldogs return to the field Friday morning at 6:30 a.m. and will work out in shorts and helmets again. --30— SC State Football 2014 Spring Practice Schedule Practice # Date Time 1 Wed, March 19 6:30 AM 2 Fri, March 21 6:30 AM 3 Sat, March 22 10:30 AM 4 Mon, March 24 6:30 AM 5 Wed, March 26 6:30 AM 6 Fri, March 28 6:30 AM 7 Sat, March 29 10:30 AM Scrimmage 8 Mon, March 30 6:30 AM 9 Wed, April 2 6:30 AM 10 Fri, April 4 6:30 AM 11 Sat, April 5 10:30 AM Scrimmage 12 Mon, April 7 6:30 AM 13 Wed, April 9 6:30 AM 14 Fri, April 11 6:30 AM 15 Sat, April 12 1:00 PM Spring Game
