BOWLING GREEN, Ky. — Under nearly perfect conditions for football in Bowling Green on Wednesday, the Hilltoppers enjoyed their second practice of the spring season, noticeably increasing their tempo on both sides of the ball as the session went along.
Spring football on The Hill is brought to you by the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety’s: Don’t Text and Drive Awareness Program. All practices are open to the public and will be capped off by the annual Red and White Spring Game, April 19 at 1 p.m.
Defense was the focus on the day for the assembled media after practice as they met with associate head coach and defensive coordinator Nick Holt to discuss his defense which finished as the best in the Sun Belt last season.
“It’s really good to be back. It seems like we haven’t done any football stuff in forever,” said Associate Head Coach and Defensive Coordinator Nick Holt. “We’re on a mission (as coaches) here. We’ve got to get a lot better here because we lost some key guys, but that’s the way college football is. You have to get the young guys to step up.”
