Alabama Spring Football Update

TUSCALOOSA , Ala. - The Alabama football team held its last practice in pads before Saturday's A-Day game, working out for over two hours Tuesday at Thomas-Drew Field.

The Crimson Tide will practice in shorts on Thursday before the spring game.

"Today was a good day," Alabama head coach Mike Shula said. "Looking at Saturday's scrimmage (on tape), it was good. Pretty much everybody took a step forward. Hopefully we'll have two good days to finish up spring."

Shula said A-Day will be a mixture between a regular game and a scrimmage. Kicking will not be part of the game, but punt/punt return will be done at some point in the day.

The lead-in to A-Day will be a busy one. On Friday, the A-Club Golf Tournament will be held at Ol' Colony Golf Club.

Fan Day will take place Saturday at Coleman Coliseum from 9-11 a.m., followed by the Tide Pride Luncheon at 11:30.

At 1:30 p.m. at Denny Chimes the Walk-of-Fame ceremony will take place, where 2003 captains Derrick Pope and Shaud Williams will be honored.
