Jonesboro (ASU) – The Arkansas State football team was back on the practice fields Sunday evening for its third workout of its fall camp, dressed out in shorts and shoulder pads for the first time and together as one unit a day after running a split practice divided by mostly newcomers and veterans. The Red Wolves will hold a split practice again tomorrow before holding a scrimmage during its fifth practice on Tuesday.
A-State went through drills, special teams work, passing skeletons and a pair of team sessions while covering various other practice material and continuing the installation process on both sides of the ball. The Red Wolves concluded the days work with a team period that focused on different down-and-distance situations.
"We were really pleased with most of practice today," said head coach Steve Roberts. "We tended to fall off at the end of a couple of segments, but our kids were working extremely hard and there was a lot of running. I was very pleased with level of commitment and concentration, just have to fight through those times when we are physically slower.
