Spring football practice nearing

Amid the March Madness, uh, madness -- the gridiron Cowboys will be in the spring trenches. With seven of the 15 practices open to the public, fans can get a glimpse of what 2003 may bring.

Spring football workouts at Oklahoma State are scheduled to begin Wednesday, March 5 and run through Friday, April 11.

Head Coach Les Miles will send his Cowboys through 15 workouts over that time period, 10 of which are scheduled to be in full pads. Most of OSU's spring workouts have early evening start times and each spring workout is subject to change with little or no advance notice.

The Cowboys are entering their third spring under Miles and are coming off a 2002 campaign that produced an 8-5 record, regular season wins over Nebraska, Texas A&M and Oklahoma and a Houston Bowl win over Southern Mississippi.

Seven of Oklahoma States 15 spring practice dates are open to the public. The open practices are scheduled for March 5,6 and 7th, all at 6:25 p.m., on Lewis Field. Other open workouts are set for Monday, March 24, Monday, March 31, Friday, April 4 and Friday, April 11.

In addition to the beginning of spring drills, OSU will host its annual spring Coaches Clinic on Thursday, March 6 and Friday, March 7. This year's clinic will encompass all positives of a football clinic, including player demonstrations in the morning, video evaluation and personal one-on-one interaction and an up-close look at how the Houston Bowl champions prepare on the practice field.

For more information on the 2003 Coaches Clinic or to register for the two-day event, call the Cowboy Football Office at 405-744-3703.
