JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (March 13, 2017) – Following off-season workouts in the weight room, the ETSU football team hit the gridiron for the first time this spring as the Buccaneers wrapped up day one of spring practice on Monday. 

The Blue and Gold held a two-hour, 24-period practice outside on the practice fields adjacent the Basler Center for Physical Activity. 

ETSU will hold six more practices before holding its first spring scrimmage, which is scheduled for Thursday, March 23. Due to the ETSU men’s basketball team playing Florida on Thursday in the NCAA Tournament, head coach Carl Torbush has altered this week’s practice schedule. The Bucs were scheduled to practice Thursday afternoon, but ETSU will now hold practices on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. 

Following practice, Coach Torbush, quarterback Austin Herink (Cleveland, Tenn.) and linebacker Dylan Weigel (Pickerington, Ohio) met the media to talk about the Bucs’ first day of spring practice.

Below are audio clips of their interviews…
