For the second year in a row the University of Delaware football team held their spring practice at Milford High School. On a day that featured warm spring temperatures and lots of smiles from all the young fans in attendance, the Blue Hens put on quite a show.

The day started with a football clinic put on by Delaware players and coaches. In the fast paced session young players got a chance to work on their football skills. There were running, passing and catching stations, with young kids getting a chance to strut their stuff. “It’s great for the University of Delaware to come here for the second year in a row,” Milford athletic director Mike Tkach stated. “We have great weather today and the kids are having a ball.”

As for the practice, second year coach Dave Brock and his players looked sharp for a spring practice. The offense looked good in various situational drills and the overall intensity looked to be much higher that when the Blue Hens last visited. In particular sophomore running Jalen Randolph looked particularly strong, turning a short pass into a 20 yard scoring play and also scoring a short yardage touchdown in goal line drills. With Andrew Pierce no longer on the Blue Hens, it is expected that a big part of the running load will fall to Randolph. “Jalen is a really, really tough runner,” Coach Brock commented. “He is a really tough kid.”

Coming to southern Delaware for the second year in a row is not an easy logistical task, it is however something that Brock believes is important. “We have lots of fans from downstate that trek their way up to Newark seven times a year, “ commented Brock. “It’s a great way to show them how much we care about them, respect them and all they do for us.”
