WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - With back-to-back practices scheduled for the lone time this spring, the Boilermakers went shorter and a little lighter in the 11th practice Friday. Donning helmets as the only issued protective equipment, the practice featured a lot more walk-through sessions and no contact.
Head coach Jeff Brohm spoke about what he's looking forward to seeing at tomorrow's scrimmage in Ross-Ade Stadium.
"What we want to do is come out and get as many game situation reps that we can, simulate the game," Brohm said. "We want to call it up, move the ball, have our guys be able to react and think quick and on the fly, get lined up, execute and find a way to get better."
Video of Brohm's interview is below.
Boilermaker All-American running back Mike Alstott and his son, Griffin, a 2017 Purdue signee, took in Friday's practice and will be in attendance at Saturday's scrimmage. Coach Brohm indicated about half the scrimmage will be live hitting with the other played at "thud" tempo.
The Boilermakers have three more practices before the annual Spring Game on April 8. All three, as well as the Spring Game, are open to the public and free of charge.
