Coach Doeren & the Pack open spring football practices this morning and conclude with the Spring Game on April 20th @ 1:30pm. Some of the media will have access to the early sessions of practice so we can expect to see a good bit of coverage which is a breath of fresh air that State has desperately needed. In fact, all of the social media access that we’ve seen coming out of this staff is amazing and I personally love the open nature this staff seems to have with promoting the program.
GoPack.com has put out the complete 2013 spring roster which there are a few things to note that stand out to me at first glance:
- DE Kenderius Whitehead is on the roster after being on and off the updates this spring while he was rumored to be dealing with some personal issues. I sure hope he’s gotten those straightened out for his personal well-being first but also for the added talent he adds to the DE position.
- Whitehead will wear #9 which is some mighty big shoes to follow.
- Logan Winkles is not on the current roster which may have something to do with his recent DWI charge which you can read more about on the forums. (Keep in mind this doesn’t mean he’s off the team)
- Early enrollees Ath Bra’lon Cherry and OL Cole Blankenship will start at WR & Center respectively.
We’ll keep you updated throughout the spring and looking forward to seeing you April 20th at The Carter
