Football Monarchs Scrimmage Open to Public Wednesday
Aug. 20, 2012
NORFOLK, Va. - Have a look at the 2012 Football Monarchs as they scrimmage for the third and final time this preseason on Wednesday at Foreman Field at S.B. Ballard Stadium at 6 p.m.
Fans are encouraged to sit on the west side of the stadium.
The coaching staff will be using the scrimmage to help finalize the two-deep heading into ODU's first game with Duquesne on September 1st.
Head Coach Bobby Wilder feels like they have about a dozen new Monarchs who will have an opportunity to play this season.
"That doesn't mean we're going to play all 12 of them, but we feel like there's about are 12 guys of the new guys that are going to help us and have an opportunity to play," Wilder noted following last Friday's scrimmage where a number of back-ups saw a lot of field time.
"We'll have one more time to really evaluate them in game-like situations. We'll have a really good idea after Wednesday night how many of those new Monarchs will be playing against Duquesne."
