Spring Workouts Begin

March 27, 2012

The Cheyney University football team has begun their spring workouts. The culmination of spring practice will be the annual Blue –White game slated for Saturday, April 21. The game will take place in O’Shields-Stevenson Stadium with kick-off slated for 12:00 pm.

“The first weekend of spring practice went extremely well. The players are flying around and excited to be back on the field. We are looking forward to the next couple weeks getting out there and working to get better every practice,” stated Coach Lockard.

Things are a little different for Coach Ken Lockard this spring as he lost the interim part of his title. The Wolves return 14 starters, seven on each side of the ball. In assessing the group, Coach Lockard stated, “Our speed with a core of returning starters along with a stable coaching staff should help us grow and continue to improve.”

Dominic Gould and Ariene Garder have really seemed to step up and become leaders of the offensive and defensive lines. Both are returning starters from last year. All conference running back Marcus Jones will anchors an offense that continues to improve.
