Spring Football Practice Brief: Bulldog Defense Show Enthusiasm

ORANGEBURG, SC – South Carolina State continued spring football drills Monday with a two-hour session in which the Bulldogs continued installation of the offensive and defensive schemes the team hopes to use in the fall. The Bulldogs conducted its fourth practice of a scheduled 15 during the morning session with the defense showing a lot of enthusiasm from new and returning players. “We’ve been having pretty productive spring workouts on both sides of the ball but no matter how you put it the defense always seems to have the slight edge over the offense,” said SC State head coach Buddy Pough. “Our guys continue to work hard and run to the football so I am excited about what I am seeing on defense from our players and coaches. Monday’s session was the second in full gear for Pough's team and he noted the players have responded well to the early morning practices. “I think it’s working out quite well getting things out the way early on,” he said. “The weather is a little bit different most parts of the day but overall we are ok and they are adjusting just fine being on time.” The Bulldogs coming off a 9-4 overall season and a 7-1 showing in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, claimed their 15th league championship this past season for the historic football program and 5th during Pough’s 12-year tenure. “We are still working on installing different schemes on both offense and defense and hopefully by the end of the week we can get to a point where we can run some things effectively,” stated Pough. SC State returns to the field Wednesday and Friday at 6:30 a.m., before preparing for their first scrimmage of the spring drills Saturday. --30— SC State Football 2014 Spring Practice Schedule Practice # Date Time 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
