Annual Purple/Gold Spring Scrimmage is Saturday at noon

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- Spring drills for the Tennessee Tech football team are winding down to the finals days, and on Saturday coach Watson Brown's team will hold the annual Purple/Gold Spring Scrimmage beginning at 12 p.m. Fans are invited to watch. Admission is free.

The scrimmage format will give the coaching staff a chance to look at a large number of players who are hoping to emerge into larger roles for the 2014 season, and continue to fine-tune changes and additions made to the Golden Eagle offense.

"Spring drills are the most important time of the year for a team on the field," Brown said. "This is when we find players, and we've had a really good opportunity to look at a lot of players during the past couple weeks."

The spring sessions have also given the coaching staff a chance to take a closer look at a bevy of players who were on the team last fall but sitting out as redhsirts.
