An early riser by nature, Arizona State coach Herm Edwards initiated Spring Practice almost a month before most Division 1 contemporaries. Like all daybreak endeavours, the decision was risky, but the second-year coach felt it was worth it.
“I think it’s going to pay dividends for us,” he said. “Especially in the weight room in the next seven weeks. We’re still building, (but) I like that we started early. I think it’s going to help us in the long run.”
Friday’s Maroon & Gold Practice was both the final Spring session and the first opportunity for this year’s team to play in Sun Devil Stadium.
