SC STATE SPRING PRACTICE BRIEF: Bulldogs Conduct First Scrimmage

ORANGEBURG, South Carolina -- The South Carolina State football team held its seventh practice of the spring followed by the first full scrimmage Saturday at Dawson Stadium. The two hour session included various schemes on offense and defensive sets.

"It was the first scrimmage you saw some good and bad but we had a lot of guys participate today," said SC State head coach Buddy Pough. "So now we have a chance to evaluate things and see if we can find some guys to help us late on down the line"

With less than two weeks left of the originally slated 15-practice schedule of the spring, head coach Buddy Pough noticed the intensity developing on both sides of the ball in the first scrimmage.

SC State will conduct their annual Pro Day Wednesday (March. 30) with approximately 15 seniors from the 2015 team, which are scheduled to work out for pro scouts from the National Football League (NFL).

The Bulldogs return to the practice fields Tuesday and Thursday at 6:50 a.m., for the eighth and ninth spring workout. SC State will hold its annual Garnet & Blue Spring game Saturday, April 9th at 1 p.m. in Oliver C. Dawson Stadium.
