CLINTON, S.C. — The Presbyterian College football team held its first padded practice of the spring on Friday afternoon as the preparations are underway for the upcoming spring schedule. The Blue Hose worked in shoulder pads and shorts for three hours as they prepare for the Runnin’ Bulldogs next month.
“As long as the attitude and the effort is good I am not gonna get too high or low in what I am seeing because this is the first time we’ve been in pads in over a year,” said Head Coach Tommy Spangler. “I am more concerned right now about every one of these guys’ techniques and how they are getting better in being able to put that into a group effort.”
PC ran through a number of drills at the beginning of practice as the team was separated in two groups following COVID-19 protocols during the team’s first on-field work since the end of the 2019 season against St. Andrews.
After early drills, the team moved into positional work before continuing with 11-on-11 drills along with special teams on a chilly Friday afternoon inside Bailey Memorial Stadium.
PC is slated to return to the practice field on Saturday. The Blue Hose open the 2021 spring slate on March 6 against Gardner-Webb at 1 p.m. in Boiling Springs, N.C..
