Charleston, S.C. - Expecting inclement weather on Saturday morning, the rain held up, allowing the Bulldogs to progress through a second day of spring practice at Johnson Hagood Stadium. According to head coach Kevin Higgins, The Citadel football team continues to make progress as they adjust to a new coaching staff and new philosophy.
"We had a good second day," Higgins said. "We expanded our offensive and defensive packages and we are happy with the way our players have picked up on new concepts."
Although Higgins emphasizes that the teams is much further ahead than they were at this point last season, there are still several areas that he and coaching staff must focus on in spring practice in order to have a successful 2006 season.
"Our quarterbacks must continue to work on accuracy and the receivers must be more consistent catching the football," Higgins said.
There were no injuries reported on Saturday and Higgins said the Bulldogs' progress is on schedule. The football team is off for the remainder of the weekend. They will report for meetings on Monday and head back to the gridiron on Tuesday afternoon for day three of spring practice.
