Defense trumps the offense in ASU spring game

Defense trumps the offense in ASU spring game

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany State held its annual spring football game Saturday afternoon.

The Defense would edge the offense in the ASU Coliseum 40-39.

But the afternoon was more about coaches figuring out how their players would handle in-game situations.

The first three quarters were 20 plays each, with the offense and defense having an opportunity to score depending on play outcome.

The 4th quarter consisted of a couple 2-minute drills.

After the game, Interim coach Anthony Kelly felt like the team still needs to work on its depth, but their starters are about where they need to be.

"First 11 on both sides are pretty solid," said Kelly. "Probably some things we can fix with them. Overall I think we're right where we need to be going into the off season in terms of our summer. We're going to do a good job this summer in terms of work, and that's just what we do. We win the season during the summer. That's been our philosophy for years. We'll work hard this summer and we'll get better and we'll be ready for Valdosta when the time comes."

The Rams open the season at home against Valdosta State on Labor day weekend.

That's a Saturday afternoon kickoff on September the 2nd.
