    RUSSELLVILLE, Ark.(ATU) - Arkansas Tech head football coach Raymond Monica welcomed 93 players on the opening day of spring football practice, Monday, March 25, 2013. The Wonder Boys will participate in 15 practices lasting through April 20.

    "The players have been working extremely hard in the offseason," said Monica. "Coach (Kurt) Corbin has done a great job with the strength and conditioning efforts. I'm excited to see what we can do when we get on the field."

    The Wonder Boys' spring game will take place at Thone Stadium at Buerkle Field on Saturday, April 20, with a 3 p.m. start time.

    "I am looking forward to see what we look like - how we move around, how we pick up things. Defensively, we're using a whole new scheme. Our kicking game is similar but there will be differences. There's a lot of teaching in the first two days with the players just in helmets. We will see how we progress. Anytime you get the players together and compete, and start practicing, it's a lot of fun."
