Jenkins: ASU showing improvement

MONTGOMERY, Alabama -- Alabama State ended its spring practice with what head coach Brian Jenkins called “a good showing” at Saturday’s Black and Gold spring game at ASU Stadium.

Jenkins, who is beginning his second season with the Hornets, said he was excited with what he saw from his team and that the coaching staff prepared the team well all spring.

“I think everyone saw the direction this program is going,” Jenkins said. “Our coaching staff did a wonderful job getting the kids ready in a short period of time. These guys now have a better understanding of our expectations.”

There were four touchdown drives between both offenses, two of them led by junior college transfer Jujuan Young-Battle.

Battle finished off the first drive, traveling 75 yards, with the first of his two touchdown passes to wide receiver Joe Williams IV.

Battle completed 7 of 10 passes for 114 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. Jenkins said all of his quarterbacks played well.
