CLINTON, S.C. – The Presbyterian College football team held its eighth practice of preseason camp on a overcast Saturday morning in Bailey Memorial Stadium. The team worked through practice with 11-on-11 work for much of the time with referees on hand.

“I'm not going to get too up or too down right now on day nine with this young team,” head coach Tommy Spangler said after practice. “I felt like I saw some good things today, but I know we still have a ways to go to be ready for Austin Peay."

It was the eighth practice in nine days to open the preseason practice slate as the team worked for about three hours in the stadium with much of the latter part of practice focused on 11-on-11.

Following the first full week of practice, Spangler has been pleased with a number of things as the team gets ready for the second week of camp.

“I love the attitude of our guys and how eager they have been to learn, “said Spangler. “As a team they have to continue to try and to work as we get ready for Austin Peay in three weeks. Our guys need to continue to have a sense of urgency and continue to improve and develop as we go through the next few weeks."

The Blue Hose will continue practice in the mornings from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.. The opening kickoff at Austin Peay is now just 21 days away.
