HUNTINGDON FOOTBALL PRACTICE REPORT – August 17
Montgomery, Ala. -- The Huntingdon football team completed its first two-a-day practice with a two-and-a-half hour morning practice and a two-hour afternoon workout at Charles Lee Field on Tuesday.
The Hawks focused on fundamentals and practiced different situations in the morning workout. The defense showed its competitive side by flying around making plays. “The coaches are doing a great job preparing our players to be in the right places. I’m very pleased with the level of intensity we showed on the field. That’s a step in the right direction, but we’ve got to cut down on making mistakes that will get you beat,” said head coach Mike Turk.
The primary goal of the afternoon practice was implementation of special team schemes.
“Our guys fought through fatigue today and got better,” said head coach Mike Turk. “We’re a young team and we’ve got to continue to work on minimizing mental mistakes.”
The Hawks will return to their regular once-a-day practice schedule on Wednesday, beginning with their first preseason scrimmage at 9:30 a.m. on Charles Lee Field. The workout is slated to begin with a short period of fundamental work before primarily working in a scrimmage mode. Practices are always open to the public and the media.
FOOTBALL MEDIA DAY:
Coach Turk and the team captains will speak to the media in the Dining Hall on Wednesday beginning with lunch at 12 p.m. then the press conference will follow at 12:30 p.m. The members of the media are welcome to join the Hawks.
