SWO - Spring Practice Update


March 22, 2008

WEATHERFORD, Okla. – Southwestern Oklahoma State football fans can get an early peek at the new-look 2008 Bulldog squad during the annual Blue vs. White Intrasquad Scrimmage set for Saturday, April 5. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. at Milam Field on the west end of the SWOSU campus.

Fourth-year head coach Ryan Held welcomes back 10 of 22 starters from a squad that finished 6-5 in 2007. Those starters, along with the handful of players who spent last year as a redshirt and promising group of newcomers, are bound to create considerable competition across the board.

Held and his staff have spent the spring working to establish a more consistent running game to compliment an offense that is certainly expected to have its fair share of firepower. The SWOSU defense, which returns many of its top players from a year ago, also has undergone some fine-tuning to maintain their aggressive style of play.

The simulated game will feature many of the characteristics of an actual game with officials, scoreboard, down-and-distance markers and a public address announcer.
