FAYETTEVILLE — The University of Arkansas football team continued its week of spring practice Wednesday afternoon inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.
Defensive coordinator and secondary coach Paul Haynes met with the media following practice and said he was pleased with the effort he has seen from the team so far.
“They’re giving great effort,” Coach Haynes said. “The tempo of practice is fast, so it’s going to be challenging for our guys. The effort they’ve been showing has been good and we’re going to make it great.”
Coach Haynes also talked about this Friday’s scrimmage and how he expects the team to put forward a lot of effort, but to also stay focused on fundamentals.
“I expect a lot of effort out of Friday’s scrimmage,” Coach Haynes said. “That’s the key thing. When you start saying the word ‘live,’ the first thing that goes is technique and fundamentals. That’s the one thing we have to make sure we buckle down on. We want to key in on fundamentals, technique and communication. We want to get to the line and talk and run to the ball.”
Arkansas continues practice Friday, March 30, which will be open to the public. Practices on April 6 and April 13 will also be open to the public leading up to the Red-White Spring Game, sponsored by Cox Advanced TV, on April 21 at 2 p.m. If practice is held inside Walker Pavilion, it will not be open to the public due to space constraints. The practice schedule is subject to change. Please check ArkansasRazorbacks.com for any updates.
