Central Michigan Football Hosts Public Spring Practice

MOUNT PLEASANT – The Central Michigan football team is entering a new era with a new coach in charge who decided to change things up this spring.

The Chippewas held a public practice Saturday instead of a spring game.

New head coach Jim McElwain says the practice was largely due to a lack of numbers, as well as an effort to keep players healthy at a couple of key positions.

One of the bigger position battles we are keeping an eye on is quarterback.

Six different players took snaps Saturday, but practice was all about continuing to improve.

“It felt great. From the year that we had last year, you know, a lot of ups and downs, and just to come back out here on a new start and a new journey, it just felt good to be back out,” said junior wide receiver, JaCorey Sullivan.

“I have been proud of the way that they have handled the install, the amount of install, and gone out and executed it. The progress here has been fantastic,” added head coach Jim McElwain.

The Chippewas have one more day of practice on Monday before the summer break.
