Albany State concludes spring football practice with Blue & Gold Scrimmage

ALBANY, Georgia -- Spring practice will officially conclude Thursday at Albany State with the team’s annual Blue & Gold Scrimmage at 6 p.m. at the Albany State University Coliseum.

After a successful 2015 regular season that ended with a disappointing loss in the SIAC Championship game, ASU head coach Dan Land said they’re looking to take it to the next level. In order to do that, Land said they have to better learn their personnel.

“When you’re talking about spring ball, you’re talking about evaluation,” he said. “You get a chance to evaluate some of the guys who didn’t play enough last year and upcoming guys may get to play, so we need to know what they can and cannot do and as coaches, we need to know what we can run offensively and what we can’t run, what we can run defensively and what we can’t run.”

Land added that spring workouts give them the freedom to experiment just a bit.

“Right now, what we’re doing is a lot of technique,” he said. “We’re trying some stuff to see if they’re gonna work for us offensively, defensively, special teams, if it don’t, we’re gonna kick it out.”
