NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee State football team kicked off the final week of spring practice, Monday, inside of the Indoor Football Facility because of rain.
One area that featured a large number of young faces was at defensive back.
At safety, both Daniel Fitzpatrick and Ronnie Vinson are gone, leaving underclassman in their place. Javon Brandon, Laquarius Cook and LaKhalon Holland all saw action last season, but will be asked to do more for next year’s team.
TSU will also be bringing in JUCO transfer AJ Flowers and true freshman Trevion Duncan in the fall to fight for playing time and provide depth.
The cornerbacks will be led by senior Bernell Brooks who looks to continue the line of great players at the position. Taking over for De’Ante Saunders should be sophomore Terrell Bonds, who had a stellar freshman campaign a year ago.
Also in the fold are jack-of-all-trades Ezra Robinson who could be asked to play a variety of positions and David Kamara who transferred from Ole Miss in time for spring practices.
The Tigers will take one day off before re-taking the practice field on Wednesday.
The Blue & White Game will occur this Saturday at 3 p.m. CT.
