FAYETTEVILLE – The University of Arkansas football team held its fifth session of preseason camp on Friday. Defensive coordinator Chris Ash met with the media after practice and gave his impressions of the team after the first five practices. 

“We’re getting better,” Coach Ash said. “Right now the consistent challenge is being consistent. That’s what we have to do better as individuals and as a unit to get to where we want to be. We’ve got too many highs and lows right now. It might be from one player here, one player there. But, we win or lose as a unit, and we’ve got to be more consistent.”

The team will hold an open scrimmage on Saturday, starting at 3:50 p.m. inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Gate 1 will be the only entry into the stadium and will open at 3:30 p.m. All seating will be in the lower bowl on the west side of the stadium with exception of lower rows near the field due to stadium maintenance. Fans will not be permitted to take photos or video of practice, including with cell phones. Parking is available in all lots west of Razorback Road, as well as Lot 44 on the north side of the stadium. The Fred W. Smith Football Center is not open to the public at this time.

Coach Ash noted the format of the practice and addressed his expectations for the first scrimmage. 

“It’s going to be a situational scrimmage,” Coach Ash said.  ”Mostly, right now, we’ve done first and second down. We’ve done third down. We’ve done some red zone. Today was the first time we’ve done red zone. So, we’ll scrimmage all the situations that we’ve had a chance to practice.

“The first thing that usually happens when you get to your first line of scrimmage situation…guys are so concerned about just going to hit people. We want to see guys who can go out there, they can still get lined up, they can still communicate, they can still execute the calls, plus they can go have that contact tackling. It’s going to be our first tackling opportunity, so I’m excited to see how we tackle.”
