NASHVILLE --- Tennessee State University head football coach James Reese is pleased with the start to the Tigers' spring drills and is especially looking forward to the team's first full-fledged scrimmage session on Saturday morning.
?The guys are definitely responding to spring practice with enthusiasm and with intensity,? said the Tigers' mentor. ?It has been very encouraging thus far.?
The Tigers are set for their first scrimmage session at 10 a.m. Reese says the session will be a good early evaluation point at this time in the practices.
?It will be an opportunity to see where we are and how the players react in more of a competitive situation,? Reese said. ?It will be good for the coaching staff in our evaluation process.?
The goal of having a starting quarterback established coming out of spring practice is priority for the Tigers' staff. In addition, the inside running game has been a point of emphasis while the defense has been looking to improve its pursuit.
The Tigers will have their Blue-White Spring Game on April 12 in Hale Stadium at 3 p.m.
