ETSU continues to prep for Saturday morning scrimmage

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (March 17, 2016) – Following a pair of afternoon practices in only helmets, the ETSU football team put on the full pads for the first time this spring and capped off an up-tempo practice on Thursday night inside the MSHA Athletic Center.

The Bucs, who are prepping for Saturday’s first full scrimmage of the spring (10 a.m. at the outdoor practice fields), held another 2-hour, 24-period practice. ETSU head coach Carl Torbush is pleased with what he has seen during the first three days, while wide receiver Adam Mitchell (Bristol, Tenn.) and defensive lineman Joe Pittman (Pell City, Ala.) talk about how it’s been coming off season-ending injuries from a year ago.
