BOCA RATON, FL - Florida Atlantic University's football team finally got a sunny day to put to good use. The Owls were able to practice outside uninterrupted by weather conditions for the first time this week.
The first half of practice the team separated into offense and defense and did a walk through of corrections from the scrimmage they had the day before. After corrections were made focus was put towards special teams. Senior punter Mickey Groody took turns taking reps in the punt coverage drills, and place kickers also got a good amount of work in with kickoff drills.
Tomorrow three-a-day practice will begin again for the Owls with practice at 8 a.m., 10:30 a.m. and the final practice of the day at 4:30 p.m. The first and third practice will be full pads.
The stadium is the centerpiece of FAU's Innovation Village, located in the north central area of campus. The open-air stadium is a $70 million project funded through a direct bank loan and private donations will is slated to feature 6,000 premium seats, including 24 suites, 26 loge boxes, 1,000 premier club seats and 4,000 priority club seats, and the latest, state-of-the-art amenities.
