Kansas Football Reaches Halfway Point of Spring Practice

April 2, 2013

LAWRENCE, Kan. Kansas football held its ninth practice of the spring season Tuesday afternoon, going through seven periods of individual and group drills before spending the second half of the session with a special teams scrimmage.

The highlight of the practice was junior punter/kicker Trevor Pardula who showed off his leg. Pardula was 6-of-8 on field goals, had two punts longer than 60 yards and was consistently sending his kick offs into the end zone.

Other highlights of the practice, which was open to the media, occurred durring the 7-on-7 drill with quarterbacks and wide receivers going up against defensive backs. There was great competition throughout the drill, with junior quarterback Jake Heaps turning in an impressive day in the passing game.

Kansas football will wrap up its 2013 spring season on Saturday, April 13 with its annual Spring Game. The game is scheduled for 1 p.m., in Memorial Stadium. KU will host its second annual “Train Like a Jayhawk” free kids clinic prior to the game.
