Monmouth Ends Spring Practice with Offensive Explosion

Monmouth Ends Spring Practice with Offensive Explosion
BY JEREMY SCHILLING
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

WEST LONG BRANCH - Give the quarterbacks credit: on a day when a QB competition took center stage, Monmouth’s quarterbacks – and the offense as a whole – brought their best stuff.

And to a coaching staff – and the over 2,000 fans in attendance at Kessler Field for the Hawks’ Blue-White Spring game – that’s music to their ears.

Six offensive touchdowns were scored Sunday, on a day where the offense ruled and head coach Kevin Callahan was satisfied.

“I was very pleased with the amount of work that we got today and the quality of the work,” Callahan said. “This was our second, approximately 100-play scrimmage of the spring…On the whole I was pleased with the progress that we made across the board during spring practice. I thought every position really took a step in their development and improved. And that’s what spring practice is all about. It’s improvement at each and every positon, and a lot of that is due to the fact that our guys brought a lot of energy and enthusiasm to the field every day.”
