The Citadel holds spring game under Thompson

(STATS) – The Citadel didn’t wait until the end of spring practices to see its hard work paying off.

The Bulldogs held their annual spring game Saturday in Charleston, South Carolina, as part of offseason preparations under first-year coach Brent Thompson. Their practices wrap up Thursday.

Scoring was not kept at Johnson Hagood Stadium as the scrimmage lasted about an hour and a half. Redshirt freshman quarterback Jordan Black took the majority of snaps with the first and second units while returning starter Dominique Allen played a limited role. The Bulldogs coaching staff came away pleased by the defensive performance.

The Citadel went 9-4 last season, earning a share of the Southern Conference title with a win over South Carolina to end the regular season. The Bulldogs were 13th in the final STATS FCS Top 25.

Thompson was elevated from offensive coordinator to head coach after Mike Houston left to become James Madison’s coach. Thompson’s offense will return its top four rushers from a triple option set that ranked second in the FCS in rushing yards per game.
