NASHVILLE --- The Tennessee State football team is coming off its fifth non-losing season in the last six years. Head coach will head into spring practices on Monday, Mar. 19 looking to find replacements for seven starters on the defensive side of the ball.
The depth of the defense was a strength in 2017 and coach Reed, as well as defensive coordinator Garry Fisher look for the youngsters to step up during the spring session. Offensive coordinator Jeff Parker will look to replace all-conference wide receiver Patrick Smith and offensive lineman Ty Allen, but returns nine starters heading into the non-traditional season.
