ASU hopes to end spring on right track

MONTGOMERY, Alabama -- Eight days ago, Alabama State head coach Brian Jenkins walked off the practice field very unhappy with his team.

After watching a mistake-filled practice on that cool Friday, Jenkins said he felt the team “stunk” and they didn’t have much more time to waste.

“I was feeling good until (last Friday),” Jenkins said. “The biggest thing is not to stink it up. We have to keep our focus on the basics and make sure fundamental football becomes habit for us. We are making progress and I hope we continue doing that.”

Today, the Hornets get a chance they didn’t have a season ago: playing a spring game.

Alabama State holds its Black and Gold spring game at 11 a.m. today at ASU Stadium, giving fans a chance to see the last of the 10 practice sessions that began last month. The gate open at 10:30 a.m.

Today’s spring game is the main event of Alabama State’s Black and Gold weekend. It includes a 2 p.m. softball doubleheader against Mississippi Valley State in which ASU could clinch the Southwestern Athletic Conference East title.
