Tuesday, March 29, 2005
NASHVILLE --- New Tennessee State head football coach James Webster sent his team through a busy first week of spring drills. After taking a few days off for the Easter holiday, the Tigers return to the practice field this week. Webster has been pleased with the early portion of the spring drills. Webster says that the team has made progress, but must continue to work in making it a productive spring session. "I have been pleased with the way the team has responded, the competitiveness, and learning how to finish," said the new Tigers' leader. "That part has been encouraging." With drills set to resume, Webster said that this week's point of emphasis will be improving technique. In addition, Webster says that players will be looked at in different positions to see where they will best help the team. "We are going to move people around and evaluate them to see where they can best help our football team," said Webster. "This will be an important week for us in that regard." The Tigers will have a scrimmage on Saturday. Spring drills will conclude on April 9 with the Annual Blue-White spring game at 2 p.m. in Hale Stadium.
