Fayetteville — The University of Arkansas football team continued spring practice Thursday afternoon inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.
After practice defensive coordinator and secondary coachChris Ash spoke with the media about how this week’s practices have been going.
“This week we are getting better,” Coach Ash said. “We just finished practice five and I have seen a lot of improvement each day we go out there. We are really stressing daily improvement and I think they are following.”
Coach Ash also commented on things that the coaches are really trying to emphasize during the spring season with the defense.
“One, if we are going to get better on defense, it will start with the effort that we play with,” Coach Ash said. “Every day we go out there the number one thing that we are trying to coach and critique is the effort. We are also making sure that our alignments are correct and consistent. If we don’t have mental errors and beat ourself we will have a chance to win some more games and be a lot better team on defense.”
Practice continues this week with workouts scheduled for Saturday. Arkansas’ spring practices culminate in the Red-White Spring Game, sponsored by Cox, on April 20 at 2 p.m. inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorbacks Stadium. Admission to the game is free.
