Spring Football Practice Report



March 17, 2000

NEW ORLEANS -- The Tulane football team enjoyed another strong day of practice with Friday's drills focusing on the running game.

"We had a good practice today," said head coach Chris Scelfo. "We saw a lot of guys flying around, getting to the ball and wrapping up a lot better. The secondary really broke well on the ball today."

The running game was highlighted in Friday's practice, which lasted two hours. Quarterback Patrick Ramsey had a good day directing the offense, while Coach Scelfo continues to be pleased with the play of the defense.

"Patrick had a good day," Scelfo explained. "And the defense really got after it today. I'm really looking forward to the scrimmage tomorrow."

Tulane continues spring practice through April 3. The first scrimmage of the spring is scheduled for Sat., March 18, at the Tulane football practice facility. The scrimmage will begin at 9 a.m.

Several Green Wave players have suffered injuries in the early days of spring drills. Defensive back Allen Phillips suffered a left knee injury and will miss the rest of spring practice, while defensive tackle Domonick Crockett (right knee), defensive back Quentin Brown (thigh bruise), and linebacker David Dorsey (eye) will all be evaluated on a day-to-day basis.
