Despite being unable to complete spring practice in person, some Bulldog football players are continuing to train in isolation.
Players have adapted to the new training style and have found ways to remain competitive.
“We communicate through GroupMe after receiving a message entailing our daily workout from our strength coach BA (Ben Ashford),” redshirt freshman quarterback Will Hudson said. “He has turned it into a competition where players send their completed rounds in the chat so everyone can see who is working and who isn’t and that way we can maintain our competitiveness.”
Although it is easier to receive coaching instruction in person, Hudson acknowledged that drills can be completed in isolation with the help of creativity.
“All the players have been really creative while quarantined at home but all of it has been to see what we can come up with for workouts,” Hudson said.
In 2019, the Bulldogs finished with an overall record of 5-7 (4-4 SoCon) and will be looking to rely on depth and experience in the upcoming season.
