The Samford football team practiced twice on Wednesday, working out in the morning in full pads, and again in the afternoon in shells at Seibert Stadium.
The practices were the 11th and 12th of fall camp for the Bulldogs. The team is working toward its second scrimmage, which will be held Saturday morning at Seibert Stadium. Samford head coach Pat Sullivan praised the attitude and enthusiasm of the team during the workouts.
"The intangibles with this football team are as good as I have ever been around," Sullivan said. "They came out this morning and had a good practice, and the enthusiasm for this afternoon has been good."
Senior Andy Summerlin and junior Ben Neill are still splitting time as the first-team quarterback. Sullivan said he has seen positives from both players.
"Both of them have done some good things, and we like both of them," Sullivan said. "When we looked at the scrimmage film, Andy had some big plays, and Ben made a couple of big plays as well. I'm glad we have both of those guys on our side."
Through the first 12 practices, Sullivan said, though the team still has a lot of work to do, he has been pleased with the way his players have worked.
"I couldn't be more pleased with the effort," Sullivan said. "We're not there yet, and we have a lot of mistakes to correct. We have to get some of the young players some reps, but I am excited about this football team."
The Bulldogs will practice once on Thursday. The team will practice at 9:10 a.m. in full pads at Seibert Stadium.
Samford opens the 2012 season with a SoCon home game against the Furman Paladins. The game is scheduled for a 3:30 p.m. start from Seibert Stadium, and it will be broadcast live on CSS.
