The Youngstown State football team used its two practices this week to focus on fundamentals and get refreshed as spring workouts near conclusion of their third week. YSU worked out for 75 minutes in helmets on Thursday inside the WATTS during their latest practice.

On Tuesday, YSU worked out for two hours spending the majority of the time on individual work and special teams situations. Newcomer PK Joey Cejudo showed a strong leg converting on a 50-yard field goal and just pushed a 58-yard try wide.

Backup quarterbacks Dante Nania and Nick Wargo led most of the two practices with senior signal-caller Kurt Hess missing practice because of class obligations. Following practice on Tuesday, Hess worked with wide receiver Marcel Caver and offensive coordinator Shane Montgomery on a variety of pass-and-catch routes.

During Thursday's brief indoor workout, the Penguins worked on play installation and various special teams drills.

A busy week continues Friday night features the Fourth Annual Football Women's Coaching Clinic at Stambaugh Stadium.

Saturday the Penguins will hold their second major scrimmage of the spring starting at 10:30 a.m.
