TRM football spring training dates to have slight change from past years

The spring training schedule will have a slightly different time frame for the T.R. Miller Tigers football team this year.
Coach Jamie Riggs has gotten his work in during a two-week window the past few seasons, but practice will carry into a third week this year.
T.R. Miller is slated to go back to work Tuesday, Feb. 6 and wrap up with the annual Red/White Spring Game on Wed., Feb. 21.
While some schools opt for spring training later in the year, Riggs said February is the best time for his program.
Riggs said there are too many conflicts to have spring training after spring sports are completed.
Riggs prefers the format of ending spring training with an intrasquad game rather than a game against an opposing school.
more playing minutes for our players. If we played an opponent, those minutes would be cut in half.”
