FOOTBALL BEGINS SPRING PRACTICE, SPRING GAME SET FOR APRIL 23

Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s spring football practice will be in full swing when the Rangers get underway on Tuesday, March 30 at Ranger Field. Approximately 85 players will take part in spring practice.

“The players and the coaching staff have worked extremely hard during the off-season strength and conditioning program in preparation for spring drills,” stated Head Coach Keith Barefield.

“The 85 players represent the largest number of athletes we have had out for spring practice since I arrived in the Spring of 2007. With the large number of returning players and a solid group of new players on our roster, we expect a lot of competition and enthusiasm during practice these next four weeks. It will be interesting to see who emerges as the front runners for starting positions in the fall.”

The Ranger football team will practice on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 3-5 p.m., with a varying practice time on Saturdays. Practice dates are weather permitting and no practices will be held during Easter weekend.

The annual spring game has been is set for 7 p.m. on Friday, April 23 at Ranger Field.
