With the sun shining bright and a slight breeze the Huskers headed outside today for its fifth practice of spring drills. The Big Red strapped up in full-pads as they continue to develop under Head Coach Bo Pelini.

“We continued to make progress today and that is the key. As long as our effort is up and we make progress every day you can’t ask for much else,” Pelini said.

Pelini addressed the move of senior Cody Glenn, who worked out at linebacker on Wednesday. Pelini thought Glenn did very well in his first practice on defense.

“We want Cody (Glenn) to be on the field in any way because he is such a great athlete. He just wants to help the team and for this being his first day I thought he did very well,” Pelini stated.

 After practice Glenn said he will do whatever he can to help the team get back to where they want to be.

“I just want to help the team win. With Coach Pelini’s reputation on defense I have been thinking about a switch for quite some time. Today was like the first day of school,” added Glenn.

The Huskers will be off tomorrow before hitting the practice field again on Friday in preparation of the April, 19, Red-White Spring Game. The Husker staff will also host more than 700 high school coaches at the annual Spring Coaches Clinic which runs Thursday evening through Saturday afternoon in Lincoln.
