The Norfolk State football team will begin its spring practice schedule this Friday with a non-contact session beginning at 3:30 p.m. at the Spartans’ practice field.

The Spartans will have 15 practices this spring beginning Friday. The team is slated to practice each week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons from 3:30-5:30 p.m. (except April 10 and 15) and Saturdays from 9-11 a.m. The team’s final scrimmage will take place under the lights at Dick Price Stadium on Friday, April 19 from 7-8:30 p.m.

Adrian expects 91 players to go through spring drills. The Spartans are slated to have 14 full-time starters back from last year’s team, including eight on offense and six on defense. Coaches will also get a chance to evaluate 11 freshmen who redshirted in 2012.
