TOWSON, Md. -- While the first day of practice was spent on the field the Tigers used to call home during the early years of Towson football, day three of practice was spent on the field the team currently calls home -- Unitas Stadium.
With the addition of shoulder pads now added to practice, the team was able to be much more physical in practice and return the high intensity that the coaches had brought to the field on day one. Drills going over fundamental blocking and covering patterns were followed by contact drills. Officials were even on hand to not only get themselves back in the swing but to call penalties in the 7 v 7 drills.
Nearly the entire team is able to practice as there were every few orange jersey for the players that were not allowed contact and the athletic training staff had less than a half dozen guys they were working with on the sidelines. Punter Bill Shears was the only noticable player in crutches, as he is recovering from a foot injury.
The remaining practices will be split between the Towson Center lower practice field and Unitas Stadium. Video of the practice is available by clicking the link at the top of this page.
