TSU has ‘triple play’ of events scheduled

Friday, April 11, 2008 at 1:23am

The Tennessee State Tigers will end their spring football drills with their annual spring game on Saturday at 2 p.m. in the “The Hole” of W.J. Hale Stadium.

The Blue and White football game ends fifteen spring practice sessions for TSU. On offense, quarterback Antonio Hefner has returned from last season’s ankle surgery and running back Javarris Williams —TSU’s second all-time rushing leader — has had a strong spring. On defense, DB Larry Williford is expected by Tiger coaches to be the man as TSU begins life after Dominique Rogers-Cromartie — the defensive back that is expected to be a first-round pick in the NFL Draft.

The Blue and White game will be the final component of the TSU athletic department’s “Triple Play Saturday” which also features the Boston-Moon track meet (10 a.m.) on the Edward S. Temple Track and TSU’s softball team playing a double-header against OVC foe Austin Peay State (noon) at the Tiger Softball complex.

At the Boston-Moon Relays, the Tigerbelles and Flying Tigers will host athletes from fifteen (15) schools at the sixth annual event. Former TSU Olympian Ralph Boston will serve as meet referee.

During halftime of the football game, the newly elected Student Government officers, including Mr. and Miss TSU will be presented. The TSU band will be present to provide music during the game.
