DURHAM, N.H.—The University of New Hampshire football team will kick off its spring practice period starting on Tue, April 8, and ending on May 3 with the team’s annual Blue/White Scrimmage at Cowell Stadium.
    Spring practice consists of 15 dates, including three scrimmages.
    This spring, the starting quarterback position is up for grabs after the graduation of Walter Payton Award winner Ricky Santos and the coaching staff is looking forward to evaluating sophomore R.J. Toman (Mission Viejo, Calif.), redshirt freshman Kevin Decker (Armonk, N.Y.) and a number of newcomers as well.
    The annual Blue/White scrimmage will take place on Sat., May 3, and is set to begin at 12:30 p.m. at Cowell Stadium. This is a great chance for fans to see some new faces as they battle for starting jobs and playing time. Admission to the spring game is free.
    The Wildcats are coming off an impressive 7-5 2007 season in which they made their fourth straight appearance at the NCAA Tournament under 10th-year head coach Sean McDonnell.
The program has been very successful playing teams from the FBS in recent years, posting wins over the likes of Marshall, Northwestern and Rutgers. The team will have another opportunity in 2008 when it travels to take on Army on Sept. 6. The home-opener is set for Sept. 20 vs. Albany. Game time is 12 p.m. Tickets for all UNH home games are available online at www.unhwildcats.com.
