BOCA RATON, FL - The Florida Atlantic University football team donned pads for the first time this spring and with the added protection, players enjoyed the first day of spring contact.
"We slipped a little today on execution, but I expected that because we were heavy on install," said Charlie Partridge, FAU's head football coach. "The execution and tempo were good. Overall, I was pleased."
FAU will host an open scrimmage 1 p.m., Saturday, Mar. 22 and the 2014 Spring Game will be 1 p.m., Saturday, April 5. Both events are free of charge and will be held in the FAU Football Stadium, 777 Glades Rd, Boca Raton.
