Football Spring Practice Report: April 5

first_imgDES MOINES, Iowa – The Drake University football team concluded its second full week of practice at Drake Stadium on Tuesday, April 5.  This spring, the linebacker group is surrounded by competition with nine returning from last year’s squad. The group is looking to use this time to become more efficient pass rushers and hone their open-field tackling skills.  The Bulldogs have a tough task of replacing not just the production but also the leadership of All-American and two-time team captain John Hugunin. Fifth-year seniors Michael Roane and Taylor Coleman have stepped up as vocal leaders for not only the linebackers but also the whole defensive unit.  The team will have their first scrimmage of the spring on Saturday in preparation for the annual Blue and White Game on Saturday, April 23. Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more
