Counting down to kickoff with a little something about each of your Red Wolves.
"We had a productive practice on both sides of the ball, so we had a pretty good day," said Harsin. "Today was probably the best day the offense has had overall. They made some nice plays in there and they were executing well, especially our first group."
The Red Wolves held various other team sessions, but the day was highlighted by a 15-18 play full-contact scrimmage that concluded practice. Three different scenarios were incorporated into the brief scrimmage, including one where the offense was backed up near its own end zone, another open-field situation that started at the offenses' 35-yard line, and a final red zone competition. "We felt like from an offensive and defensive standpoint, we needed another live session before our scrimmage Saturday," Harsin said. "We've had a few days since our last scrimmage to freshen up, so it was time to go live again today and give our guys another opportunity to tackle, carry the ball in full-contact situations and just hit again."
The Red Wolves will hold a full-contact scrimmage Saturday at Liberty Bank Stadium as part of their Fan Fest, which will begin at 1 p.m. Following the conclusion of practice, several members of the team and coaching staff will take the opportunity to greet fans and sign autographs.
