Yale spring football is underway
The Bulldogs opened their spring session this week. It will finish up with the annual Blue-White scrimmage on April 19 at 2:30 p.m. at the Yale Bowl.
Morgan Roberts looks poised to take over at quarterback. Also, Tony Reno made it official on Friday that Joe Conlin has been promoted to offensive coordinator.
Reno has been pleased with the Bulldogs improvement in the gym.
“The guys have made marginal gains in the weight room to get stronger and that was a major area of concern going into the offseason,” Reno said. “Really good gains from a lot of guys. There is still a ways to go to get stronger.”
Some players of note that will be held out of the spring session for precautionary reasons: RB Tyler Varga, RB Candler Rich, WR Robert Clemons, OL Ben Carberry and DL Ben Bedard.
Roberts expects WR Grant Wallace to emerge this season. Wallace had 31 receptions for 421 yards and two TDs last year.
“This is Grant Wallace’s year to really shine,” Wallace said. “I think he had Chris in front of him a little bit last year. I don’t think that necessarily affected his play, but maybe his opportunities on the field. This year he’s going to be a deep threat and surprise everyone and be one of the best players in the Ivy League. I love watching him play and I think this year is going to be standout year for him.”
I will drop by practice again later next week.
