The intensity is already there for the Texas State football team.
The season opener against 10th-ranked Florida State is fast approaching and the Bobcats are more prepared to take on the biggest challenge in program history.
There was limited contact in Friday’s practice. The players have been practicing all week long, so Coach Dennis Franchione decided to give them a reward by giving them a light practice so the players’ bodies can heal up.
“We had three good days with shoulder pads,” Franchione said. “I was pleased with the work Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. They worked hard Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. So because of that we decided to wear shorts and helmets today.”
