FORT COLLINS, Colo. – As Colorado State’s Spring Football begins to wind down, the Rams took Thursday’s practice indoors as they begin a stretch of three consecutive practices.
The Rams practiced for just under two hours as they prepare for Saturday’s Green and Gold Spring Game at Hughes Stadium.
Head Coach Jim McElwain left practice with about 10 minutes remaining so he could travel to Denver for the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame banquet where running back Kapri Bibbs will be honored as the Male College Athlete of the Year.
Thursday’s practice was spirited with numerous drills pitting of the offense against the defense in competitive situations.
Defensive line coach Greg Lupfer met with media after practice and Lupfer spoke highly of a unit that he was proud of last year.
“I think the continuity is a better than last year,” Lupfer said. “The kids are better in the classroom. They pay attention more and ask better questions. I think this group has a chance to not just be as good, but to be flat out better.”
The Rams will return to the practice field on Friday afternoon as they practice for the final time before Saturday’s spring game.
