FAMU’s Alex Wood encouraged after first week of fall practice

TALLAHASSEE, Florida --Their tenacity and togetherness could be heard all the way from the parking lot.

Florida A&M coach Alex Wood hoped his team would begin fall camp with team unity as a focal point to the 2016 season, and the Rattlers seem to be taking heed after the first week of work on the practice fields.

“We had a terrible season last year,” said returning quarterback Kenny Coleman.

“It’s nice to see guys working hard, being competitive and they’ve bought in. They’ve bought into the system, and I think we’ve got a shot at it this year. (The) guys want to win.”

After a 1-10 campaign, the Rattlers were unable to participate in a spring practice due to APR-related sanctions, making most of their offseason work centered on building their strength and conditioning with new coach Parker Brooks.
