Winston-Salem State’s final spring scrimmage which was scheduled for Saturday has been cancelled because of the threat of bad weather.
The Rams were supposed to put the finishing touches on their spring practice at 1 p.m. at Carver High School.
Coach Kienus Boulware of the Rams said they had 13 practices this spring.
“I thought we were pretty productive in what we wanted to accomplish,” Boulware said. “We had a quick whistle and didn’t want to do too much in terms of contact so we wanted the guys up on their feet.”
There was some disappointment, however, that they couldn’t have the scrim-mage on Saturday.
“Their field over there at Carver held up pretty good so far but with more rain expected you don’t really want to go over and mess up somebody else’s field,” Boulware said. “And with the threat of thunderstorms as well tomorrow it wouldn’t have been a good idea to try and play.”
The Rams, who are coming off a 5-4 season, were able to get several of their younger players plenty of practice time this spring.
“With our veterans we know what they could do but I liked how some of the younger guys stepped up,” Boulware said.
There are about 20 days left in the semester and the Rams will do some community service work as well as focus on exams.
“We’ll get out in the community some, and we want the guys to finish strong in the classroom,” Boulware said.
Boulware also doubled as the defensive coordinator this spring after Todd McComb left to be an assistant at North Carolina.
"We wanted to focus on the little things, especially on defense," Boulware said. "I thought we did a good job of that."
