Despite the conditions outside, spring football practice is officially underway at Northern Michigan University.
The Wildcat football team likes to play fast and as quick as possible in any elements. NMU’s first spring practice definitely tested that theory.
With the Superior Dome out of commission until Thursday, the Wildcats turned to their practice field outside on the banks of Lake Superior. Despite the frigid temperatures, gusting winds and at times was a heavy snowfall, that didn’t slow the Wildcats down one bit.
“The amount of stuff that we executed today was impressive,” said NMU head football coach Chris Ostrowsky. “We were able to operate, run the football, play defense, disguise some things and run to the football. I was real good for us execution wise.”
“A lot of the guys were really excited to get out here again,” said NMU wide receiver Marcus Tucker. “Everybody hustled, brought a lot of energy and passion to the practice field.”
NMU has 15 total practices scheduled for the spring season. The spring game takes place on April 12th.
