Scrimmage wraps week of spring practice

Scrimmage wraps week of spring practice
FAYETTEVILLE — The University of Arkansas football team held a scrimmage during practice inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium Friday afternoon.
Razorback defensive coordinator and secondary coach Paul Haynes commented afterwards about what he thought about the team’s performance with one week of spring practice remaining.
“You never know how good or how bad it really was until you go watch the film,” Coach Haynes said. “I liked our effort. The energy was good. Guys were flying around. It was fun to watch them today and I can tell they are continuing to get better. Those are the things we want to key in on. Effort and tackling need to be huge for us. We missed some tackles, but guys were flying around and made some big plays for us today”
On the offensive side of the ball, offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Paul Petrino said after practice he was impressed with the first string players and how they got up and down the field.
“I thought the ones played great,” Coach Petrino said. “Tyler (Wilson) played great. I thought Cobi Hamilton was playing really good early on. They executed well and went up and down the field. The twos did a better job last week, but the ones had a really good day.”
Arkansas continues practice Tuesday, April 17. Next week’s set of practices will lead up to the Red-White Spring Game, sponsored by Cox Advanced TV, on April 21 at 2 p.m. The practice schedule is subject to change. Please check for any updates.
