CFB: Jacks Prepare For 2014 Spring Game

CFB: Jacks Prepare For 2014 Spring Game

After a month of practice the Jackrabbit football team will celebrate the conclusion with their annual Spring Game at Coughlin Alumni Stadium.

The Jackrabbits wrapped up their final spring practice this afternoon. Although their Spring Game is basically a glorified practice, they are preparing to entertain the fans as if it were a Saturday in the fall.

"It's game day," said SDSU Senior QB Austin Sumner. "We have had a few game day practices out here and it will be full speed. Hopefully nobody gets hurt, that's the biggest thing. The guys have been flying around and they will be playing hard."

The reason many of the guys will be playing so hard is because many of them will be fighting for positions on the roster. You won’t see stars such as quarterback Austin Sumner or running back Zach Zenner, so who will we see?

"You will see a lot of young guys to be honest. We have six starters that haven't taken any reps Zach Zenner won't take any reps. Really it's not bad football, fans will just see a lot of guys that we will see in the future here," SDSU Head Coach John Stiegelmeier said.

"Guys will be flying around, playing hard, and coaches will be coaching hard," Sumner added. "It's going to be intense, hopefully some good football, and a lot of touchdowns scored."

This year's seniors are accustomed to scoring a lot of touchdowns and have translated that into a 23-15 record in their three years on campus. That is why it is so important for them now to prepare their underclassmen to help get them further than before.

"It is," Stiegelmeier stated. "Sumner, Jason Schneider, Zenner, and Jack Sherlock on defense are all guys that have won a lot of football games here, but we haven't won far enough in the playoffs. I know they have a further vision for the Jacks."
The Jacks will kick off their Spring Game at 11 o'clock Saturday morning. Coach Stig says to keep your eyes on sophomore running back Kyle Paris and 6'4 freshman wide out Jake Weineke.
