Jags Make Up Missed Practice From Saturday

February 20, 2012 · By · Filed Under Football 

South Alabama made up their lost practice Monday morning due to weather on Saturday. They hit the field even earlier than normal for the Jags. Their practice went from 5:30am – 7am as they wore shells for the first time.

They opened practice with work on the punt team. They then transitioned to working on the running game. After that, they worked on screens.

The offense and defense then came together to work on perimeter runs and passes. Following that, they went 7-on-7 passing drills.

Later the offense and defense came together once again to work on third-down scenerios, picking up blitzes before final drills to end practice.

After practice, Coach Jones spoke about practice. “This football team is hungry and they think they have a lot to prove. But on the flip side of that, we have a lot of work to do. Defensively right now, we are ahead of the offense and that’s fine. That’s what we want, a great defense. Offensively, we are still putting things in and trying to establish a running game, passing game and quick-tempo offense. Their heads are spinning, but I’m proud of where we are.”

Coach Jones continued speaking about the players progress. “It’s not going to happen overnight, we just have to keep working. And we have to keep in the back of our minds that our goal is to be great this fall. If we work every day and do what we’re supposed to do, then we’ll get there. We just have to keep that mindset.”

The Jags will have Tuesday and Wednesday off before hitting the practice field again on Thursday at 6:30am.
