Longhorns finish up first half of spring drills

Longhorns finish up the first half of spring workouts

The Texas Longhorns finished up the first half of spring workouts on Wednesday with a full scrimmage at DKR Texas-Memorial Stadium. Afterwards, Texas head coach Mack Brown was quick to praise his team for their spirited play to finish out workouts before the team heads home for spring break.

"The scrimmage was really good," Brown said.

"We started with a lot of blitz, especially for the young quarterbacks. We looked at different scenarios on third down and did some situations. We still have a long way to go with our kicking game, but we knew that coming into spring. We got 80 to 90 plays today and got a lot of really good looks at a lot of the young guys, so this will be great film for us to study and move forward. So, we're through with seven (practices)."

According to Brown, the most important phase of the spring will begin for the coaching staff during the next week, as they go through all seven workouts and attempt to make some tough decisions in regards to possible position changes.

"What we can do now is evaluate these seven practices over spring break and come back and reset our goals for the last eight and start looking at what we need to change," Brown said.
