Early rising Wildcats

It may have started out slow Monday morning at Northwestern,

as the Wildcats held their first practice of the spring football session. After

all, practice started at 6:45 a.m. because of reading week conflicts so the

intensity level didn’t really kick in until about 8:30.

Coach Pat Fitzgerald said he wants to emphasize the

following during spring practice, which ends April 16 with the spring game:

“On offense we have to identify our starting quarterback and

the little things we saw on tape we want to get more efficient on like third

down, red zone and executing the fundamentals,” Fitzgerald said. “On defense,

we have to identify some starting positions and get some swagger back. Kicking

game, we have to identify roles and figure out who is our starting place kicker

going into [training] camp [in August].”
