LOGAN, Utah — Utah State's football team held its first official practice of the 2019 season Thursday afternoon as 107 players dressed in helmets, practice jerseys and shorts for the two-hour workout on the USU practice fields. Among the group were nine returning starters (2-offense; 7-defense) and 31 returning lettermen (13-offense; 16-defense; 2-specialists), including 15 seniors.
First-year head coach Gary Andersen, who is in his second stint with the Aggies after coaching the program from 2009-12, was pleased with his team’s performance on Day One.
“It was a positive first day. The players were excited to be out here, and they should be,” said Andersen.
