Western Carolina opened its football Spring Drills on Monday afternoon on the turf at Bob Waters Field/E.J. Whitmire Stadium.
"We had a great first day of practice, great weather - couldn't have asked for better. It seems like the winter went on forever. It is great to be back out here working together as a team this spring," said WCU head coach Dennis Wagner Monday evening following his squad's first of 15 practice sessions. "The biggest thing for us right now is coming out and competing every day."
The Cats will conduct spring practices every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 5:00 pm until 7:00 pm. The squad breaks out the shoulder pads on Friday before getting into full pads next week, although full contact will be limited.
