Football seeks an improvement for the upcoming 2010 season

April 30, 2010

After a lot hard work and tough training over the winter and spring, the Millersville football team’s spring camp has finally come to an end. They sweat, bled, and had a few injuries here and there, but the team still had fun with everything they did. Most importantly, the team also saw a lot of improvement from last year’s spring camp.

Every year after spring camp the football team has a spring game. This year the game is April 22, on Chryst Field at Biemesderfer Stadium, and begins promptly at 7 p.m. The game is not a regulation game, but a scrimmage within the team. The team is either split up as offense against defense or divided evenly. . . .

2010 NFL mock draft

April 30, 2010

1. St. Louis- Sam Bradford Quarterback (QB) Oklahoma: Franchise QB potential who is too tempting to pass up. With no offensive line to protect the brittle Bradford, he is set up for failure.

2. Detroit- Ndamukong Suh Defensive tackle (DT) Nebraska: Arguably the best player in the draft, Suh is perfect for what ails a putrid Lions defense.
