Time is of the essence for Jackson State this spring

JACKSON, Mississippi -- Nine of Jackson State's 15 spring practices are in the books.

The Tigers have implemented all of their base packages, and first-year coach Tony Hughes was generally pleased with how the team performed in its first scrimmage this past weekend.

Now he wants his players to maximize the final six practices.

"Every day we have to improve from now on," Hughes said. "Because once spring training is over, we don't get these days back, and we start moving into summer training or camp in the fall. Every day is really critical to the development as our football team. That's the challenge every day."

Hughes felt the team improved during it's scrimmage and that effort carried over into the first two practices this week. He graded the team on four categories and will continue to do so during the season.
