Ball State fourth-year head football coach Pete Lembo will continue preparations for the 2014 season when Spring Practice begins March 25.

"We have had good retention and numerous players have redshirted the last three years," Lembo says.  "As a result, we now have some depth in the program.  Because of this, there should be a lot of intense competition for playing time this spring.  Numerous student-athletes that have been role players in the past now have an opportunity to play a more meaningful role.  Our focus this spring will be on allowing these position battles to play out in practice.  We do not want to get bogged down with too much schematically.  As always, there will be an emphasis on fundamentals and developing a strong knowledge of our systems. From there, we want to maximize repetitions to see who can excel when the lights go on."

Coach Lembo will conduct his Spring Practice press conference Tues., March 25 at noon at the Ball State Alumni Center.  Fans can access the press conference live on www.ballstatesports.com.

The Cardinals open the 2014 season with a Sat., Aug. 30, home game vs. Colgate, while its other non-conference games include at Iowa (Sept. 6), home with Indiana State (Sept. 13) and at Army (Oct. 4).

Ball State's spring practices are open to the public and traditionally the weekday sessions begin at 3:45 p.m., while the Saturday's start at 10 a.m.  Days and times are subject to change, and for the best up-to-date practice schedule, contact the football office at 765.285.8251.
