Wildcats Spring Practice Report: April 5
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The Bethune-Cookman football team held its eighth practice of the spring and fifth in full pads with a two-hour workout Friday afternoon at the Wildcat Practice Fields. The practice extended just over 12 periods with heavy emphasis on offensive and defensive sets.
With the team more than halfway through the originally slated 13-practice schedule of the spring, head coach Brian Jenkins noticed the increased intensity on the field during Friday’s practice.
The Maroon and Gold spent much of practice focused on both 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 action amongst the first and second team units. Additionally, the offensive and defensive lines did some individual workouts with their position coaches.
The Wildcats endured light rain at the start of practice before precipitation moved out of the area midway through. From that point on, the team worked out in temperatures ranging from the low-to-mid 60s, while the skies were cloudy and winds blew in from the ocean less than two miles east of campus at 8-10 mph.
B-CU returns to the Wildcat Practice Fields on Saturday, April 6.
Bethune-Cookman’s 13 spring practices conclude with the annual Spring Showcase on Saturday, April 20. The time and location for the event should be finalized early next week. Fans are encouraged to attend the event as it’s free to the public.
The first edition of the CatEye Network original series First Down aired Tuesday, April 2, going behind the scenes with the B-CU football team. The series will feature six episodes throughout the course of spring practice leading into and beyond the Spring Showcase on April 20.
