2019 Spring Preview

Local Sports

FRESNO, Calif. — The Fresno State football team completed its 2019 spring season on Saturday in front of the Red Wave at Bulldog Stadium in its annual Spring Preview. It was the Bulldogs’ 15th and final practice after opening spring football on March 11.

“We made a lot of progress,” said head coach Jeff Tedford. “A lot of young guys got some great opportunities to grow and learn – on offense, defense and special teams – to feel the speed of the game … when we get back from spring break, we’ll evaluate our roster and make some decisions on stratifying our depth chart and go from there.”

The University observes spring break, April 15-19, and the team will come back to its strength and conditioning program and zero in on finishing strong in the classroom. The Bulldogs will have three weeks together after returning from spring break, and until finals week starts, May 13-16.

On the football field on Saturday, the Bulldogs used their last practice together as just that, a practice, rather than a game.

“That was one of the main goals today,” Tedford said about staying injury-free. “Stayed very basic and just tried to get some fundamentals in and get one more practice in. We stayed off the ground for the most part, we only had like 12 plays live there at the end. The main objective today was to finish strong and not have any injuries in the last practice.”

Fall camp will open on Aug. 1. The season opener is Aug. 31 at USC while the home opener is Sept. 7 versus Minnesota.
