NCA&T Aggies get back to business ... chewing up the practice field

GREENSBORO, North Carolina -- The soft, green Bermuda grass of N.C. A&T’s practice field behind Aggie Stadium will never look better than it did Thursday afternoon.

A whole lot of spiked shoes will run on that grass in the days, weeks and months to come.

The Aggies held their first football practice of the season Thursday, taking the first steps in a promising journey.

A&T was 10-2 last year, 7-1 in the MEAC. The Aggies shared the league title for the second straight year, and they beat Alcorn State 41-34 in the inaugural Celebration Bowl.

The core of that team returned intact to the practice field Thursday, where 94 players worked out without pads, wearing helmets without logo decals.
