Bobcats begin spring drills this week


Coming off their first outright conference championship since 1983 and their second playoff appearahce in the last four years, the Texas State Bobcats will open their spring football drills on Feb. 16. Practices will continue through March 12.

As they practice, the Bobcats will see progress all around them. Construction on the west side of Bobcat Stadium will increase its capacity. However, that construction also is closing the press box for the next several weeks, so there will not be a Maroon-Gold game this spring.

The Bobcats return 14 starters from the 2008 season in which they finished with an 8-5 overall record and won the Southland Conference championship with a 5-2 record under second-year head coach Brad Wright.

The Bobcats will hold 15 workouts this spring with practices on February 16, 17, 19, and 20 the first week. Each practice begins at 3:45 p.m. and is open to the general public. Due to construction at Bobcat Stadium, fans are asked to sit in the east stands.

The practices resume on February 23 and Texas State will have its first of three scrimmages on Feb. 24. The Bobcats also practice on Feb. 26 and 27 to conclude the second week.

The third week of spring drills will be held on Mar. 2, 5 and 6, with another scrimmage on Mar. 3. The Bobcats will conclude practices on March 9 and 10 before holding their final scrimmage at 4 p.m. on March 12.
