FRESNO, Calif. - The Fresno State football team wrapped up its first week of spring practice on Saturday with flashes of greatness but room for improvement as it prepares to enter another week of spring ball.
"We got better [today]," said head coach Tim DeRuyter. "We still got a long, long way to go, but it's good to see guys who consistently compete."
While other squad members, new and returning, are getting their chance to put a stamp on this new Bulldog team.
"It's a time for guys to earn their position, so were going to put guys in there that haven't had a shot. Guys are going to get their opportunity because that's what spring is all about. "
"Overall it's a typical spring were there's going to be some high and lows, but it's fun to see guys compete," DeRuyter added.
The intensity and physicality will start to pick up as spring football moves along. The 'Dogs are back on the field Monday morning and after that still have nine practices before The Real California Milk Spring Game on March 23 at noon in Bulldog Stadium.
