ALVA, Okla. - The Northwestern Oklahoma State University football team concluded its spring season, which consisted of 15 practices and began on March 26, with its spring game on a beautiful Saturday afternoon at Ranger Field.
Head coach Alan Hall had his offensive unit play against his defensive unit for about two hours testing out how each group has improved over the spring season.
There was no official score kept in the game.
The coaching staff also had the kickers participate kicking extra points, field goals and punts.
The crowd saw many exciting plays including a few from the quarterback position. Kyle Jech looked sharp in throwing a pair of touchdown passes.
Hall also was impressed with the performance of tight end Chris Chamberlain and wide receiver Andrew King.
Hall also praised some of his defensive players. Defensive lineman Charles Snider and linebackers Eric Feemster and Michael Harmon made life difficult for the offensive unit.
Today's players and Hall's first recruiting class will make up the 2012 roster.
"We still have a lot of work to do," Hall said. "But, I enjoyed the effort by everybody"
The Rowdy Rangers cooked burgers and hot dogs for the team, staff and alumni at the conclusion of the game.
While the game concludes the spring season, Hall and staff will be hard at work at the Ranger football summer camps.
