Head Football Coach
Spring Football began for the Generals last night, what a great feeling. Though spring ball for us is much different than the higher division teams it doesn’t mean it’s any less important. For the staff it’s the first glimpse at what the 2013 team could look like and for the players it’s a chance to get there football legs and a chance to win jobs.
In Division III we are restricted to using footballs only, no helmets, no pads and no contact, I know it does not seem like football but we can get a lot accomplished. Our primary goal is to take a look at players in new roles and positions and to have the opportunity to get our first year players caught up. As a first year player entering college football in August, you constantly feel behind so this becomes a crucial part of their growth. We welcome all General Fans out to our workouts and look forward to seeing everyone in September. I would also like to take this opportunity to wish all the W&L teams still competing for spring conference championships good luck!
