CLINTON, S.C. – The Presbyterian College football team held its annual Fan Appreciation Day on Saturday morning at Bailey Memorial Stadium, before holding its final practice of the week. The team welcomed a large crowd of fans, friends and family to the stadium, signing autographs and taking pictures for just over an hour prior to hitting the field for practice.
The Blue Hose took to the field around 11 a.m. to cap off the second full week of practice, having worked 14 of the last 15 days in some capacity. The team worked through individual drills and special teams early on before moving in to some 11-on-11 action later in the practice for the fans on hand. The team concluded practice with a series of late game situations, which has been an emphasis over the past few days.
"It was a great day as a whole for our football team being able to get out in front of so many family, friends, alumni and fans today. It was a great opportunity to get out in front of those people and show them what we have got thru the opening two weeks and I thought fan day was a good event today," said head coach Tommy Spangler.
PC is 14 days away from the opening the 2018 season at Austin Peay on September 8. The Blue Hose are still working to put things together and become more consistent as they have come to the halfway point of fall camp.
"I have seen improvement throught the process of these two weeks and some of that was shown this afternoon as we get ready for Austin Peay, we need to continue to build on that as we head into the season."
The team will take Sunday off before returning to practice on Monday for the third week of action.
