2014 Spring Game

Fans can get their first look at the 2014 Chanticleer football team on April 12 at the annual Teal-Black Spring Game at Brooks Stadium. The game is slated to get underway at 1:30 p.m. at Brooks Stadium. The event is free to the public.

In addition to the action inside Brooks Stadium, the Coastal Carolina Letterwinners Association will hold the third-annual Teal Chicken-Pig Pickin' BBQ Festival in the stadium parking lot. The BBQ Festival starts at 11 am and is $5 for advanced tickets and $7 for a ticket at the event. For advanced tickets call the Athletic Ticket Office at 843-347-8499. Drinks will be sold separately and are not included in the cost of the ticket.

Spring Practice Update

Dressed in full pads, the Coastal Carolina football team held its ninth practice of spring ball on Wednesday. The approximately two-hour session was split between individual skill development and group work.  Like each practice this spring, the focus of the day was on repetitions for not only the veterans, but also the newcomers and underclassmen as each group session was divided into ‘ones’ and ‘twos’ allowing for each player to receive adequate work in front of the coaching staff.

The team will practice two more times this week, including a controlled scrimmage on Saturday. Both the practice and scrimmage are closed to the general public.
