Faces of Football
March 31, 2010
TUCSON--The UA football team held a spirited workout this morning at 6 a.m. at local Salpointe Catholic High School's field, with another day-break session slated tomorrow.
The team will take the weekend off before resuming drills Monday and Wednesday next week. The annual Spring Game will be held at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, April 10, in connection with football alumni weekend events on Friday. Coach Mike Stoops plans a final practice on Monday, April 12 to close spring ball.
One thing is evident from watching practice. Arizona's three junior quarterbacks are a confident bunch. Nick Foles, Matt Scott and Bryson Beirne all look sharp, according to Stoops, a feature that he feels will make for a capable offensive unit. That will help the staff as it brings along a group of seven new starters on defense.
UA quarterbacks have settled in under the surpervision of new coach Frank Scelfo, and the offensive unit -- under new coordinators Bill Bedenbaugh and Seth Littrell -- has taken it to the defense a few times this spring, notably last Saturday when the throwers connected on 30 of 35 passes in scrimmage action at Arizona Stadium.
