The third day of practice was a lot better for Coach Rod Reed and the Tennessee State football team. The Tigers completed 24 periods and went full pads for the first time during the spring.
"Today we wanted to stress high tempo," said Reed in his third year at the helm of TSU football. "We still had a few drops, but I am excited because we made some big plays and moved the ball better today."
Coach Reed was particularly impressed by his wide receiver corps that made some big catches from the arm of redshirt sophomore gun slinger Michael German.
"Our wide receivers caught the ball much better today," Reed noted. "Joshawn Bowens has been a bright spot so far this spring. Our tight ends also did a great job and Michael German was very sharp with his passes."
TSU hosts its annual pro day Friday, which is closed to the public. A scrimmage takes place Saturday with a 9 a.m. start time. All practices and scrimmages are free and open to the public.
