Illini Set to Open Spring Practice
March 28, 2011
Illinois football coach Ron Zook and the Fighting Illini will begin spring football practices bright and early at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, March 29. It will mark the first of 15 spring workouts for the Fighting Illini, culminating in the annual Orange and Blue Spring Game April 23.
This season, Zook and staff have moved spring practices to the morning to help avoid class conflicts. Spring practices are open to the public. Practices will be held at either the East Practice Fields, inside Memorial Stadium or in the Iwrin Indoor Practice Facility depending on the weather each day.
As usual, fightingillini.com and CoachRonZook.com will have complete coverage of Illinois spring football, including highlights, photos, video features, notes and more. You can also get the latest Illinois football news on Facebook and Twitter.
