Hornets wrap up first week of spring football practice

The Alabama State football team wrapped up its first week of spring football practice Thursday afternoon at Hornet Stadium.

The defending Eastern Division Champion Hornets practiced four days this week as they officially began preparation for the 2011 season.

"Practice has been good. The guys have had great energy and excitement," said head coach Reggie Barlow.  "Whenever you have enthusiasm, it makes things seem better than what they are. We have a long way to go, but I like the guys' commitment and enthusiasm over the first couple of days we've been our here."

Clearly one of the key areas of emphasis this spring will be the installation of a new offensive system by coordinator Fred Kaiss. With that, Barlow said they have slowed down the pace of teaching all of the nuisances of the offense, and the spring is a good time to do that.

"Naturally, you're going to have a lot of mistakes," Barlow said "You're going to have guys thinking a lot. So we've tried to slow it down and tried to rep the same plays for the first couple of days and then install some more and rep those for two days. There have been mistakes but you see guys catching on, guys that are studying on their own. The spring is a good time to install those new schemes and concepts, and our guys have been studying hard to pick up on things."

The Hornets will be off next week for spring break and will resume spring practice on Tuesday, March 29. The annual Black and Gold game will be held Saturday, April 16 at 2 p.m. at Hornet Stadium.
