TUCSON, Ariz. ?- The Arizona Football team continued spring drills with a two-hour practice session on Wednesday. The session was the sixth of 15 spring days allowed by the NCAA.
The team went through the standard drills including special teams, 7-on-7, 11-on-11 and individuals at the Jimenez Practice Facility for the first hour, before moving to Arizona Stadium where they worked intensively on team offense and defense.
Wide receiver Mike Jefferson ended last season with two touchdowns in the victory over Arizona State. Jefferson likes the opportunities spring ball provides to improve, “[Spring ball is] going pretty good so far. It’s good to be out here showing all the hard work we’ve been doing. It’s just good to get out here and put on the pads and play against each other. It’s been fun so far.”
Jefferson and the Wildcats will return to the practice field on Friday before holding the second of three scrimmages of the spring on Saturday. The Saturday scrimmages, which begin at 9:15 a.m., are open. The weekday practices remain closed to the general public. The annual spring game is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. at Arizona Stadium on April 23.
