First Day of Practice for Football a Success
Coach Schnellenberger pleased with his team's performance


Aug. 8, 2005

BOCA RATON, FL – The first day of practice finally came for the 2005 Florida Atlantic University football squad.

Head coach Howard Schnellenberger felt satisfied with his team's performance in their first official practice of the season.

"I'm very pleased with our opening practice. It's obvious that our coaches have done an outstanding job recruiting in the South Florida area," he said.

Schnellenberger was quick to praise his team on a good first day, but he wasn't ready to offer up any predictions on just how good this year's squad really is.

"I know we have good height, speed and athletic ability. What I don't know is just how good our football team is yet," he said.

However, his team did surprise him with their level of maturity on the first day.

"We looked much more like a veteran team than I expected," he added.

The news was also good on the injury front. No injuries were reported.

Tomorrow's practice starts at 3:30 p.m. and is open to the public.

Owl fans are not only encouraged to attend practice, but also the final stop on the Owl Tour Aug. 10 at Duffy's Jupiter East 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Anyone planning on checking out any of the practices???

I think it would be interesting, especially checking out some of the new kids. Probably harder for anyone not in sales to get out there at that time, but I'm planning on getting out there sometime this week, look for an ADT polo if you want to shoot the $hit.
