  • PISCATAWAY, NJ - The Rutgers football team will began Spring Practice 2003 on Friday, March 28 and will conduct 14 sessions before hosting the “Scarlet-White Game and FanFest” on Friday, April 25.

    “I am excited to get started. We are in year three now with these guys and everyone has a good understanding of what is expected of them,” Rutgers football coach Greg Schiano said at the Spring Practice 2003 Press Conference today. “This is our best off-season as to date in a number of ways.”

    For the third consecutive year, the Scarlet-White Game (April 25) will be held in the evening, with a 7:30 p.m. kickoff slated at Rutgers Stadium. The contest, which will feature the Scarlet Knights in an intrasquad scrimmage, will be preceded by the FanFest beginning at 5 p.m. Tickets for the Scarlet-White Game are $5.00 for adults, with children under 12 free. All proceeds will go to the Pediatric Units of Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital and St. Peter's University Medical Center.

    The Rutgers coaching staff will also host a Coaches Clinic on April 11-12, in which high school coaches will meet with the Scarlet Knights coaching staff, as well as closely observe practice and scrimmage situations. For more information about the Coaches Clinic, call (732) 445-6200.

    “We have 14 practices and the spring game to improve and that is how I look at it – as a chance to improve. I think our guys are really excited about spring,” Schiano added. “They are putting in a lot of effort and work and they can sense that the payoff is going to come.”
