Aggies set a start date for spring football practice
With many wondering just when Head coach Jimbo Fisher and the 2023 Texas A&M Football team would begin preparations for their April 15 Spring Football Game, we finally have an answer! According to GigEm 247, the Aggies are set to begin spring practice on Monday, March 20th, which will directly follow Texas A&M’s spring break vacation will run from March 13th to the 17th.
Per NCCA rules and regulations, the Aggies are granted 15 practices before the Maroon and White Spring Game, which equals four practices per week before the game, which will also include two scrimmages.
Texas A&M will be under the spotlight, especially on offense as newly minted offensive coordinator Bobby Petrino takes over the play-calling duties this season, hoping to lead a huge resurgence after their disappointing 2022 5-7 campaign can be squarely blamed on an inept offense that couldn’t find an ounce of consistency.
With the return of quarterback Conner Weigman in his first full season as the starting signal caller, the sophomore will be playing in front of a veteran offensive line as all five starters will return this season, including center Bryce Foster, right guard Layden Robinson, and Right tackle Reuben Fatheree. The starting wide receiver unit will be headlined by the return of senior program stalworth Ainias Smith, while Evan Stewart, Moose Muhammad III, and Noah Thomas finish out the presumed starting unit.
While replacing former star running back Devon Achane won’t be an easy task, this season’s running back stable made up of Amari Daniels, LeVeon Moss, and 5-Star freshman Reuben Owens will surely kickstart the offense to finally provide a multitude of explosive options in the running game instead of sole reliance of Achanes’s rare abilities.
Aggies Defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin will have plenty to work with this season, starting with the undeniable strength of the unit, the defensive line. As defensive tackle McKinnley Jackson returns for his senior season, former 5-Star nose tackle Walter Nolen and defensive tackle Gabriel Brownlow-Dindy finish out what should be a stout run defense with immense pass-rushing potential.
The defensive backroom isn’t too shabby either, led by senior safety Demani Richardson, sophomore safety Bryce Anderson will look to replace slot corner Antonio Johnson who departed for the NFL draft, while North Carolina transfer corner Tony Grimes will most likely replace longtime boundary corner Jaylon Jones, who also left for the NFL.
