SPRING FOOTBALL GAME SET FOR APRIL 18
WEATHERFORD, Okla. -- Fans wanting to get a sneak peek at the 2009 Southwestern Oklahoma State University football team can take a first-hand look Saturday, April 18 at the Annual Spring Game. Starting time is set for 2 p.m. at Milam Field.
New head coach Dan Cocannouer will showcase a revamped offense that promises to be wide open and exciting in its structure. The SWOSU defense, which returns many of its top players from a year ago, also will have a new-look with a greater more emphasis on maintaining an aggressive and physical-style of play.
The simulated game will feature many of the characteristics of an actual game but will not feature two complete teams because of the limited number of available players.
The SWOSU Athletic Association is sponsoring a hot dog lunch which is open to all family members of current players along with those who have signed letters of intent for the 2009 season. The lunch will be served beginning at 12 p.m. underneath the alumni tent just south of the main entrance.
“The kids have been working very hard throughout spring drills,” Cocannouer said. “They have carried a great attitude and have been upbeat about what we’re trying to do here from the very start.”
