CLINTON, MS - After a day of walk-throughs, the Mississippi College football team put on full pads for the first time on Monday afternoon. The defense was impressive as they flew to the football and created turnovers against the Choctaw offense.
For the first time this preseason, head coach Norman Joseph was forced to bring the freshmen and varsity together to practice in full pads on Monday afternoon. The Choctaws responded well, especially the defense.
Coach Joseph commented on the defense, "I thought they rallied to the ball well today. They were very aggressive and forced some turnovers against our offense."
"On the flip side, I felt like the offense played slowly. The quarterbacks were slow in their reads, and the receivers were not where they needed to be. The offensive line didn't protect very well. We just played really slow today."
The Choctaws will participate in their first two-a-day practices on Tuesday afternoon beginning at 9:00 a.m. The day will conclude with a 6:45 p.m. practice on the turf of Robinson-Hale Stadium.
