Central Washington Just Starting Spring Practices

Posted: Updated:

ELLENSBURG, Wash. - While the Division I schools in Washington are all done with spring ball, it's just starting at Central Washington University. Just like their D-I counterparts the Wildcats will have 15 spring practices over a one month period. Central is coming off back to back GNAC Conference championships, and have a lot of holes to fill and will give a lot of guys looks.

"Spring football you know is an opportunity for a lot of guys to earn a starting spot or earn a depth chart position, at all positions. So everybody gets lots of reps, we keep it fun, we keep it competitive. We're a little bit late because we're a quarter school, but we start April 22nd and have 15 days just like a division one program with our spring game Saturday May 18th at noon," said Blaine Bennett, CWU head coach.
