NORFOLK, Va. – Old Dominion University football will begin their allotted 15 spring practices on Saturday, March 1, and concludes practice with the Spring Game on April 12 at 3 p.m.

“This is an exciting time for our football program with the announcement of our first ever C-USA schedule in 2014. Our players and coaches are all focused on the improvements we need to make as a team. The players are currently in week five of our seven week program under the direction of Ryan Martin, Joe Makovec and Mario Crawford, our outstanding strength and conditioning coaches,” ODU Head Coach Bobby Wilder said. “We are seeing tremendous gains in the areas of strength, speed and overall fitness of our players. This should be the most competitive spring practice we have ever had at Old Dominion with only 11 seniors graduating and the addition of seven Student-Athletes joining our team in January.”

The Spring Game will begin at 3 p.m. and will be preceded by the Big Blue BBQ at noon, and following the Spring Game, the Monarch baseball team hosts East Carolina starting at 4 p.m. There will also be a 5k run to start the morning. Stay tuned to ODUSports.com for more details about the events on April 12.

All practices during the week will be held at the L.R. Hill Sports Complex and closed to the public, while all workouts held at Foreman Field at S.B. Ballard Stadium are open to the public.

Last week the Monarchs’ first-ever Conference USA schedule was announced, as ODU opens the 2014 season at home against Hampton before going on the road to ACC foe NC State.  The Monarchs host its first-ever FBS opponent when Eastern Michigan comes to Norfolk, while traveling to Rice for the C-USA opener.  Old Dominion will entertain Middle Tennessee in the conference opener on Sept. 27.
