LSC Roundup 4-21

A fresh start for ASU - Nathan Wright, San Angelo Standard Times
Last Sunday, the Angelo State University football team and first-year head coach Will Wagner concluded a month's worth of spring practices with their annual spring game at San Angelo Stadium.

It was the culmination of 15 practices for Wagner and his new team that began with some simple goals that the new coach wanted to achieve.

"We really wanted to get a good idea of what our kids could do once they put the pads on and see some guys compete, not knowing a lot about them," Wagner said. "From the get-go, we had to form our own opinions of the kids. We wanted to see what they could do and where they would fit in our scheme."

One of the biggest things Wagner noticed as the practices went on was the tempo from the offense.

"The one thing that I noticed was the tempo on the offensive side picked up as they started learning the offense, and on the defensive side we started pursuing a lot better and having all 11 guys running after the ball," Wagner said.
