McNeese Football Scrimmages Open To The Public This Weekend
The McNeese Cowboys Football team is gearing up for an exciting 2023 campaign under second-year Head Coach Gary Goff. The season is just a few short weeks away, but you can catch your first glance of the Cowboys this weekend.
The Pokes now have nine practices under their belt through their first two weeks of camp, the Cowboys will hold their first scrimmage on Saturday morning at 8 o’clock in Cowboy Stadium.
“I want to get about 30 (plays each) with the 1s and 2s, and 20 with the 3s and 4s. “I think our offensive line is light-years ahead of where they were a year ago,” he said. “We redshirted a lot of guys last year. We have good depth there now and the interior guys have played a lot of football. On the defensive side, down the middle, our safeties are tough right now. It’s very difficult for us to get them in the wrong area or their eyes in the wrong place. They’ve done a great job of preventing some big plays.” - McNeese Head Coach Gary Goff
The Cowboys will practice again on Sunday morning before taking Monday off with it being the first day of classes. On Tuesday, McNeese will move practices from the mornings to later in the afternoons or evenings.
McNeese opens the season on September 2 at home against Tarleton State. As we reported a few weeks back, you can still get your McNeese Football Tickets. CLICK HERE to find out more details.
