JACKSON - The Jackson State football team hit the field for its third of practice Monday. In addition to continuing with the conditioning the Tigers also began laying its foundation – installing concepts on both sides of the ball. Today was the first day for the Tigers in shoulder pads.
“Today was the talent evaluation day,” said head coach Rick Comegy. “We saw upper body talent and we saw who could move around in pads.”
JSU began inputting concepts for the offensive line and special team schemes. During field goal kicking drills, wide receiver Zach Pendleton blocked a kick. Other players who caught Comegy’s eye include – All-American Qua Cox (DB), Travis Woods (DB), DeSuan McKenzie (WR), Clayton Moore (QB) and LaMontiez Ivy (QB).
JSU returns to the practice field Tuesday for its second day in helmets and shoulder pads.
