116 days have passed since the team last put the helmet and pads on. Some familiar faces may have moved on, but rest assured they have left a legacy which the current Bulls will build upon in 2011. After a short Christmas break the team embarked on a seven-week winter conditioning program that made all players faster, stronger and more powerful, which was highlighted by the performances at our pro day just before spring break. Many Bulls took the opportunity during spring break to head home and rest the mind and body.
Sunday the team held a full team meeting in our newly refurbished team room and the plan and focus of spring ball was laid out. Wednesday saw us hit the field for the first of fifteen practices that will culminate in our Blue and White game on Saturday April 16th at 2pm.
Due to the snow we utilized the Buffalo Bills Indoor Field house and the intensity was high from the first snap. The energy was great and apart from a little bit of rust the standard set is something that can be used as a solid base for improvement. No one person stood out, however it was great to see Scott Pettigrew back practicing with the main group after a long injury lay off. We hit the field again on Friday and Saturday will see our first scrimmage.
