Southern football team to hold second scrimmage

The Southern University football team will hold its second scrimmage of spring practice at 1 p.m. Friday at A.W. Mumford Stadium. The scrimmage is open to the public.

The Jaguars near the final week of spring practice with practices Tuesday and Thursday before finishing with the March 23 spring game. Friday’s scrimmage comes as Southern hits the field for its 12th out of 15 workouts this spring.

Southern returns eight starters on offense, seven on defense and both specialists from a team that finished 4-7 last year.

Dawson Odums, SU’s interim head coach for the final nine games last year, enters his first full season at the helm.
