MONTGOMERY, Ala. --- The Huntingdon football team had to settle for a two hour practice in the morning, as the rain forced the team inside for the afternoon portion of its second scheduled two-a-day of the preseason on Thursday at Samford Stadium.
During the morning session, the Hawks got back to the basics and worked on fundamentals and special teams play, before spending the final portion of the workout installing new schemes and protections for Saturday’s 11-on-11 intersquad scrimmage.
“I think we made good use of the time that we had on the field today,” head coach Mike Turk said. “We exposed the offense to a good bit of blitzing by the defense for really the first time during camp, and as expected, they had a little trouble with it. However, we got a lot of stuff on film that will be extremely beneficial, so once we take a look at that, we will know the things we need to get better at. We still have a long way to go before we kickoff at Maryville the first Saturday in September.”
Huntingdon will return to the practice field on Friday morning at 9 a.m., and is open to the public and the media.
