Bulldogs Open Fall Drills


South Carolina State hit the field Saturday morning for the first of 24 preseason football practices as the Bulldogs prepare for the 2014 campaign. Approximately 95 players participated in the two-hour workout drills in helmets at Oliver. C. Dawson Stadium.

Bulldog head coach Buddy Pough, who is beginning his 13th season at the helm, said he, and his staff is excited to get off to a great start during fall camp and that day one was your typical first start of camp.

"We are hoping all the things we are putting together will work out with the addition of new coaches and players," said Pough. "It's a process anytime you are trying something new, so all we do is look for results in the end."

Some of the new additions on the coaching staff this season will be defensive coordinator Tommy Restivo and linebacker coach Ben Barton who replaced former secondary coach Joel Taylor, who is now an assistant with The Citadel.

Pough said, during the fall practices that he is relieved to finally have a kicker in place, after going through spring drills without a kicker or a punter on the roster. The best part about having Tyler Scnadrett (Fr.-5-9/170-Punter/Kicker) here is that he is a freshman so that gives us time to work with him, according to the Bulldog mentor.

The Bulldogs will conduct most of its practices during the morning session with the second on Sunday (Aug. 3), beginning at 9:30 a.m. in helmets, followed by a morning practice on Monday (Aug. 4) at 9:30 in helmets and shells.

Coach Buddy Pough's team will hold its annual "Press and Picture Day" Saturday (Aug. 9), beginning at 9 a.m. at the O.C. Dawson Stadium before conducting its first preseason scrimmage at 7 p.m. The team's annual "Meet the Players Day", sponsored by The STATE Club, will be held August 16th at 12:30 p.m. and will be preceded by the second preseason scrimmage at 10 a.m.

The Bulldogs open their 12-game 2014 schedule Aug. 30 on the road against intrastate rival Benedict College in the Palmetto Capital City Classic at 5 p.m.at Charles W. Johnson Stadium in Columbia.
