The Youngstown State football team worked out twice on Wednesday. The Penguins had a solid two-hour practice in full pads in the morning then worked out in helmets later in the afternoon.

During the morning session, YSU went through individual drills for nearly an hour then spent a long team period with the offense going against the defense. On the first play, Andrew Williams caught an 80-yard touchdown pass. YSU also spent a good amount of time on live special teams situations during the workout.

In the afternoon session, the units practiced in just helmets. Once again the Penguins worked on individual drills and had a 25-minute team period.

Head Coach Eric Wolford said YSU is working on more installation of plays and formations this week. Also he said backup quarterback Patrick Angle is getting a good portion of the work with the No. 1 unit. Wolford also said most positions have been solid but was looking for a little more consistency from the wide receivers and the secondary.

In the morning session the Guins' offense performance pleased Wolford he said.

YSU will hold a 10 a.m. practice on Thursday before returning for two sessions on Friday.

Please not that Saturday morning's scrimmage at Stambaugh Stadium is closed to the general public. The Penguins appreciate your cooperation in the matter.
