Mean Green Football Begins Fall Drills

DENTON (8/10/05) - The North Texas football team began preparations for its Sept. 3 meeting with Louisiana State with its first set of practices today at the new Mean Green Athletic Complex.


Freshman and newcomers hit the field at 8 a.m., while the varsity had its first practice at 4 p.m. in shorts and helmets.


Players went through a no-contact, fast-paced workout full of calisthenics and sprints to help them get back up to speed from the off-season.


Freshmen and varsity will practice separately until Friday morning. The team will begin full-contact drills on Sunday with two-a-days starting on Monday morning.


The team practiced without seniors Arthur McNac, Lee Clay and Roy Bishop who have not joined the team for fall practice due to various reasons.
