Spring practice photos - The Drills

While lining up across from your opposite during scrimmaging is the fun part of practice, the repetition of drilling is what instills discipline and increases agility and endurance. Take a look at some of the San Jose State football drills in this edition of the Inside Sparta Spring Practice Photo Gallery.

There are conditioning drills, agility drills, strength drills. Repetition creates muscle memory and endurance. Drilling is a necessary evil in sports, and no moreso then in football. It's those drills that enhance the natural abilities of an athlete and turn him into a football player.

Inside Sparta highlights just a few of the drills of the San Jose State football team in this photo gallery of the 2009 Spring Practice held on April 5.
