A-State Football Spring Game set for 6 p.m. Friday

JONESBORO, AR (ASU) – With the Arkansas State football team's 2015 spring camp drawing near conclusion, the Red Wolves will hold their annual spring game at 6 p.m. Friday, April, 17, at Centennial Bank Stadium.

There is no charge for parking or admission to the game, which will include four quarters and a halftime.  Prior to the game, the field will be open from 4-5:00 p.m. for kids who would like to meet with the players and coaching staff.  Additionally, those in attendance will be able to take the field after the game is over for autographs and fan interaction.  Schedule cards for the 2015 season, as well as autograph cards, will be available to the public.

Due to construction on the west side of Centennial Bank Stadium, fans are asked to park in the stadium's south lot adjacent to the practice fields, as well as the Convocation Center and Tomlinson Stadium parking lots.  As a safety precaution, the west side stands will be closed and fans will need to sit on the east side of the stadium.

Also due to construction, concession purchases will be cash only.  The concession stands will include popcorn, hot dogs, drinks and candy.  Arkansas Braces will have their Sno-Cone truck, known as “Snowy”, on site offering sugar-free sno cones at no charge. ?Fans will be able to purchase 2015 season tickets from A-State Ticket Office representatives, and the A-State Bookstore will also be selling merchandise at the stadium.

The Arkansas State marching band and cheerleaders will be in attendance, adding to the festivities for the game which will feature “Coach Experience” winner Angie Gallaher acting as head coach for one of the teams.  As part of the “Coach Experience,” Meredith Poland was selected by Gallaher to act as head coach on the opposite sideline.

The Red Wolves began their spring camp March 13 with their first team practice since ending the 2014 season with a GoDaddy Bowl appearance.  Arkansas State, which is returning 54 lettermen and eight All-Sun Belt Conference selections from a year ago, is holding 15 practices, including the spring game.
