Panhandle State Holds Spring Football Game
04/22/2014

Goodwell, Okla.—If the Aggie spring football game is any indication of what's to come for the upcoming season, opponents will have their work cut out for them offensively because the Darkside Defense showed that they are ready to ROCK!

It was a rocking-good time indeed at Carl Wooten Field as Aggie fans gathered prior toThursday night's game for a free pre-game tailgate with burgers and hot dogs provided by Seaboard Foods and sweet treats from the OPSU Methodist Student Center.

Music was played throughout the night with fans dancing in the stands and invited up to the press box to sing along for a chance to win prizes. It wasn't only the players who got to participate in the spring game, Aggie fans were brought in to the action with several contests taking place throughout the evening. The Aggie cheer team was also on hand to spark up the spirit on the sidelines.

Though an official score is not kept during scrimmage-type games, the Aggie defense were the clear "winners" of Thursday night's spring game, showing aggressive tackling and putting pressure on the quarterbacks for the full sixty minutes of play.

Coach Russell Gaskamp was very pleased with the intensity of the defense along with their ability to tackle in space; and while he was not completely satisfied with the offensive side of the game, he does feel good about their overall performance throughout spring ball and is confident that his offense will be ready to roll come September.

Gaskamp said that the next step for his team will be to "finish this semester strong; strong in the weight room and strong in the classroom." From there, the work put in over the summer will strengthen the team and prepare them for the Sept. 4 season-opener against Adams State in Alamosa. Colo.

The Aggies' first home game of 2014 will be Saturday, Sept. 13 versus Fort Lewis College. A full schedule for 2014 will be released in the coming weeks.
