Today starts the last week of spring practice for USF’s football team. The month of practice has been an eye-opener, according to both coaches and players. Spring practice is expected to end with a bang on Saturday, with the Green and Gold Bowl.
The Bulls had a light practice Monday in only pads and shorts, allowing them to recover from their spring game held at Raymond James Stadium last Saturday, April 2. This week the Bulls will be preparing for their last scrimmage until camp.
Coaches will hit the road for recruiting and players will hit the weight room, while spring practice is over with. They will be preparing for the 2011 season off the field, until camp starts in August.
The Bulls last scrimmage will be part of USF Day on Saturday, April 9. The Bulls Green and Gold Bowl will be one of five athletic events held for USF Day. This event will consist of: two softball games against Georgetown, the women soccer spring game, the Green and Gold Bowl, as well as a baseball game against Rutgers.
Both players and coaches are excited about Saturday’s scrimmage and cannot wait to see how the spring season will wrap up, as we get closer to kickoff against Notre Dame on September 3, 2011.
