The College of Idaho football team began spring practice this afternoon at Simplot Stadium. For this season the roster is filled with primarily underclassmen, and the team finished last year a 4-7 record.
The Yotes had four losses last season by touchdown or less. Spring ball gives a chance for the new players to learn the ropes and get back the basics. 51 of the 80 players will either be juniors or seniors giving the club the experience it had been lacking in the past.
"It's something that we can really build on it's something that we can refine i think the guys are excited and the coaching staff is excited and it's a great day." Said Head Coach Mike Moroski.
The 2016 season, which will feature 40 additional incoming recruits, will kickoff on Sept. 3 at Simplot Stadium against Montana Western.
