With the second scrimmage of the spring set for Friday April 13th – or Friday the 13th – it got us thinking…what are some superstitions within NAU Football? At Thursday’s practice we asked a few players to find out. Enjoy and sorry about the wind!

On Tuesday the Lumberjack football squad returned to the practice fields with a focus and emphasis on physicality and fundamentals as the practice featured full pads and many live tackling drills. Enjoy some photos from Spring Practice #7!
The Lumberjacks are back on the field on Thursday for a light practice in preparation for the scrimmage Friday afternoon from 4-6 P.M. on the lower practice field.
The Lumberjack offense used the first scrimmage of the spring to show off their new look. During the forty play, full contact scrimmage the offense piled up four touchdowns, with two of those belonging to Jeremy Dang. While the defense did have their moments, Saturday was dominated by the offense. The Lumberjacks are back on the practice field Tuesday and their next scrimmage will be Friday, April 13th from 4:00 – 6:00 pm. To see some sights from Saturday enjoy the video below!
Five practices into the Lumberjacks 2012 spring practice schedule and there are some intense competitions occurring. Thursday’s practice encouraged some healthy competition amongst teammates as it featured release and fade drills with wide receives facing off against defensive backs, full and half 7 on 7 drills, 1 on 1 pass rush drills against offensive linemen and defensive lineman, and ultimately culminated with a fierce 20 minute team period that went completely live. Both sides of the ball stepped up to answer the call of competition by showing intensity and energy. With both sides working so hard, the half practice – half scrimmage this Saturday, April 7th, should be especially interesting. Check out the photos below and on the Flickr page to see more of the competitions occurring this spring!
