NEWS RELEASE FROM SOUTHERN MISS
HATTIESBURG, Miss. – The Southern Miss football team
enjoyed a break in the weather during its only practice here Tuesday morning at
the Joe P. Park Practice Facility.
The Golden Eagles worked for two and a half hours in
shoulder pads and shorts and first-year coach Todd Monken was asked after
workout if the team improved during their session.
“I would say so,” said Monken. “Obviously the weather
helped. The cloud cover and the breeze were a lot better today, so our guys had
a little more juice (in their step).”
It was the first time in nine morning practices during
training camp that the Golden Eagles got a little relief from the heat.
Overall, the Golden Eagles have gone through 12 practices
over the first 10 practice days of camp and Monken said that fundamentally the
Golden Eagles are getting better. He also stressed that the team must continue
its hard work and continue to eliminate mistakes as it works toward the 2013
campaign and the season opener at home, Aug. 31, against Texas State.
“We are better in terms of assignment and alignment (since
the start of practice), but I don’t think we are there yet when it comes to
execution on either side,” said Monken. “That’s why you practice. We just keep
trying to eliminate all the silly things, so I think we are doing a better job
The Golden Eagles return to a two-a-day practice schedule on
Wednesday, going in full pads during the morning workout and then in shorts in
the evening session.
