MACOMB, Ill. -
The Western Illinois football squad opened spring practice on Wednesday (March 20) at Hanson Field, the first of 15 scheduled sessions. It marked the opener for first-year head coach Bob Nielson.

On the first official day of spring (and spring football), temperatures were in the 20s with a wind chill dropping temps down to 15-20 degrees.

Nielson and his coaching staff had a quick tempo during the two hour practice, the first time coaches and the entire team were able to work out on the field.

Nielson, sophomore quarterback Hayden Northern and junior defensive back Martinez Davis gave their thoughts heading into practice #1.

Western returns to Hanson Field on Friday afternoon (March 22) for practice #2.
