Football has first preseason two-a-day, gears up for first scrimmage

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The Birmingham-Southern football team had its first two-a-day practice, Friday, and is preparing for its first preseason scrimmage, which will take place at 9:30 a.m. tomorrow morning at the BSC Athletic Complex.

“Both practices went well today,” head coach Eddie Garfinkle said. “In the afternoon, we put in our short yardage and goal line packages. We also worked a lot of third and fourth down situations. Wide receiver Tony Myers [Alabaster, Ala./Thompson HS] had a good day catching the football and blocking. Tyler Worley [Vestavia Hills, Ala./Vestavia Hills HS] is starting to come on at linebacker with some big hits. Kicker Raymond Josof [Vestavia Hills, Ala./Vestavia Hills HS] kicked the ball well at the end of practice, when we put the kickers in pressure situations.”

After Saturday’s intra-squad scrimmage at 9:30 a.m., the Panthers are off on Sunday but return full-force on Monday, practicing at 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
