Coach Anderson wants players to enjoy the ride

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

The Red Wolves arrived in New Orleans Tuesday afternoon for a week of seeing the city and practice before the bowl game Saturday.

The team got some time to relax and then enjoy a team party at Shamrock Tuesday night.

Blake Guinn caught up with Head Coach Blake Anderson as they got off the bus and he said this week is about enjoying the ride.

“We got all of our work days in before we left, four solid work days,” Anderson said. “Tomorrow is a rejuvenation day to kind of recover and do some walk through. Thursday and Friday, normal workday cycle like we would have if we were playing at home. But an opportunity in the middle to do some events, see the World War II museum, some charity events and stuff like that so mainly just let them see New Orleans. Most of these guys have never been here.”

Region 8 News’s Blake Guinn will be at the Red Wolves’ practice Wednesday and will have a live update on Region 8 News at 5, 6 and 10.
