UAB prepares for the start of Spring Practice

Birmingham, Ala. (WIAT)-New UAB football coach Bill Clark addressed the media Tuesday, a day before the start of the 2014 spring football season.

Clark emphasized the importance of practice and making every minute count.

“Just getting ready to handle that pace and tempo is going to be interesting for them,” said Clark.  “That’s the first thing we have to see. I think we have accomplished a lot in the weight room and with our speed work, but from a being in shape standpoint for the way we practice, you’re never totally ready for that.  But I think our strength staff, with the speed work they’ve done, has gotten them (the players) ready for this as much as they can be. I’m excited to see how they handle it.”

Spring practice will wrap up on April 18 with the Blazers’ spring football game at West Campus Field.
