SLU Opens Fall Practice With Crisp Workout
Southeastern Louisiana University officially opened fall practice Friday afternoon that capped off a busy day as third-year coach Mike Lucas welcomed 90 players to camp.
The Lions, who open the season Sept. 5 at home against Texas A&M-Commerce, went through their conditioning test in the morning before holding team meetings prior to hitting the field for the first time in shorts and helmets.
Once on the field in team drills, the Southeastern offense showed no signs of rust with quarterbacks Brian Babin, Tyler Beatty and redshirt freshman B.J. Young sharing snaps.
“Overall, I was pleased with how we handled the first day,” Lucas said. “The offense looked like it didn’t miss a beat from spring drills. Defensively, I liked what I saw from (newcomer) Clint Coleman.
He did some really good things out there.
“We threw a lot of stuff at the freshmen today beginning with the conditioning test before spending the day in meetings and then practice and I thought they handled it well.”
Southeastern will return to the practice field at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday before holding its annual Media Day at 1 p.m.
