Penguins Continue Work With High Energy Practice on Friday

The Youngstown State football team spent two-and-a-half hours working out in helmets and shorts on a brisk Friday afternoon at Stambaugh Stadium.

The Penguins continued to work on fundamentals and on Saturday morning will put on full pads for the first time this spring. Practice is set to start at 10 a.m.

Head Coach Eric Wolford said he has been pleased with the first two practices so far, but the real work starts on Saturday morning.

"I'm excited and I think these guys are kind of antsy cause we are anxious to get the pads on tomorrow," Wolford said. "I always say a lot of guys look good in shorts, but tomorrow we'll find out whose for real and you'll hopeful hear some pads popping."
