Spangler hopes for improved ‘D’
Coordinator Tommy Spangler is hoping that a combination of seasoned veterans and wide-eyed youngsters bodes well for Louisiana Tech University’s defensive unit in 2010.
“I’m eager to see if two things can happen for us during fall camp,” Spangler said Monday, just a few hours before the Bulldogs kicked off their preseason workouts. “First, I’m hoping that our older guys remember what they did last year and continue to develop. At the same time, I’m hoping that these young guys who might not know what to do right now start blending in with the older ones.”
From all indications, based on personnel returning and the progress made in the spring, the Bulldogs’ defense has the potential to draw as much attention as the much-talked-about spread offense.
