Buffs Continue to Work Through Spring Practices

Apr 14, 2009

BOULDER - The University of Colorado football team was back on the football field Tuesday, as they continue to work toward the April 25 Spring Game.

The Buffs were practicing outside and in full pads Tuesday afternoon, the tempo and intensity were at a high level again as the team continues to look unified in their mission to improve upon last season. The defense had another strong day of practice, as they looked solid most of the afternoon.

Darrell Scott continues to look improved and noticeably more comfortable with the offense; he even scored on a long touchdown run during a full team session. The rest of the offense is continuing to make strides, as they look more in sync with each other than they did early in the spring.

Coach Dan Hawkins reiterated that Friday's scrimmage location is still undecided, due primarily to weather concerns, but if it is in the practice bubble that the scrimmage would be closed.

"Thursday the weather is supposed to hit, if you can believe the weather man," Hawkins said. "So we'll probably go inside on Thursday, I think the weather is supposed to be bad on Friday too so we'll probably be inside (for the scrimmage). We'll see how the weather holds up, I'd like to scrimmage outside if we can. If it's 40 degrees and raining or hailing I'd rather go inside and get some good work in."

Notes: The Buffs have Wednesday off before returning to the practice fields on Thursday for one last practice before their second scrimmage of the spring. Current Denver Bronco Jeb Putzier was in attendance at practice on Tuesday, Putzier played for Hawkins at Boise State.
