NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee State football team continued its practice schedule on Wednesday in preparation of the spring game on April 5 at 3 p.m.
On a perfectly sunny and breezy afternoon, the TSU defense got the better of the Big Blue offense, even though the sides were not tackling.
After starting with the punt and field goal drills, the student-athletes split up into their respective position groups to go over technique.
With the players having completed the necessary workouts, the offense squared off against the defense in 7-on-7 and eventually, in a full-blown scrimmage.
On the second play of the scrimmage, Bernell Brooks picked off a pass from Michael German in the flats and returned it all the way for a 20-yard touchdown.
Offensively, running back Darion Hall impressed with a faster foot speed and stronger cuts, leaving one defender on the ground on a draw play. While there was no heavy hitting, Hall wasn’t touched on most runs until reaching the second level.
The Tigers will conduct practice on Friday at 4 pm and then scrimmage on Saturday at 9:30 a.m. All practices are open to the public.
