Weather Conditions Change TSU Practice Times

Due to the extreme hot and humid weather conditions in the Nashville area TSU head coach Rod Reed has changed the Tigers’ football camp practice times.

The one-a-day practice times set for 3:00p – 5:30p have been changed to 5:30 – 7:55p on the upper field of the Tiger practice facility.

“We feel this is a prudent safety measure for our kids,” says Coach Reed. “It has been brutally hot and humid during our first days of practice, and although we are taking frequent breaks for water and shade it makes it hard to concentrate on learning with the weather conditions as they are.”

TSU has conducted one-a-day drills during the first week of camp, and will begin two-a-day sessions beginning Saturday, August 14th  with morning practice going from 7:30a – 9:30a. There will be a controlled scrimmage at the evening practice on August 14th with the first full scrimmage slated for Saturday, August 21st from 6:15p – 8:45p.

The Tigers open their season on Labor Day weekend, September 4th when they host Alabama A&M in the 12th John Merritt Classic.
