Nashville, Tenn. - Tennessee State University football held its' second scrimmage on Saturday morning at Hale Stadium.
Third year head coach Rod Reed thought the Tigers showed significant improvement from last weekend's scrimmage.
“I thought we played hard, competed and showed improvement,” noted Reed. “Offensively, we moved the ball well, but we stalled in the red zone. Defensively, we have to be much better against the run, but we did stand strong in the red zone.”
Tennessee State was solid in special teams as junior Jamin Godfrey knocked in four-of-five field goal attempts – his longest from 40 yards out.
The Big Blue returns to the gridiron on Monday/Wednesday with 4pm practices before participating in its' final scrimmage next Saturday, April 7.
During the week of the University's Centennial Celebration, TSU hosts the second annual Domnique-Rodgers Cromartie Celebrity Slam Jam on Friday, April 13 at 7pm.
