MSU Sets Tempo at Practice | VideoJacob Kaucher | 8/9/2012
The Beavers have officially started life as a division two football team with Thursday`s first fall practice.
The session included multiple team and individual position non-contact drills.
It gave head coach Paul Rudolph and his staff a first look at incoming freshman on the field.
And a chance for the team to set expectations for the move into the Northern Sun conference.
"There`s that tempo that you want to get," Rudolph says. "You want your guys to understand that we`ve got to compete. We`re going to run around and move around and we want you to work hard. I think that tempo. Just like the start of practice you want that tempo to be good at the end of practice you want to keep that tempo. I think you know that first one you gotta set the tone."
"The guys are buying into the program," senior cornerback Laron Peoples says. We just gotta get the younger guys on the same page. I know everybody`s excited to get out there together."
"I want to be able to go out and just show the young kids how we do it and how we practice hard, play hard, go fast, and just try to be a leader for them," senior offensive lineman Mitch Haugeberg says.
The Beavers will have 18 more practices before their season opener against Minnesota State-Mankato on Thursday, August 30th.
