(funky music) – Day one baby lets get it. – Alright Kyle, let’s go, let’s go. – Whassup? – Feeling great, say alright, it’s been a long time
since playing football. Man, this lifting, all
this lifting having me sore every single day. Man, I, it’s good to be back though. – Go, green baby, let’s get it. (various cheers) – [Whole Team] S-P-A-R-T-A-N-S. – That’s the way we do
it, good job, good job. (upbeat techno music) – [Mark] Every year spring ball sort of starts the, the um, the real new season. You know? You have different players, a lot of Freshmen coming
in, and we’ve got seven new freshmen in. We’ve also got a lot
of red shirt freshmen, so they have an opportunity, to start to sort of earn
their wings a little bit and get involved more. It’s about reaffirming what we’re doing. Changing different things, experimenting with different players, playing a little bit under duress, playing in spring games and
scrimmages and these type of things, and looking
forward to the future. (upbeat pop music) – Hard work on one, ready, one! – [All] Hard work! – [Joe] It’s senior year for me and a lot of other guys on this defense, we’ve been around the program
for a couple of years now. We haven’t had the success that we’ve hoped and dreamed to have and we’ve got one more shot to do it. We’re trying to leave it
all out there this spring. – [Brian] It’s very important,
I think this is kinda the time where we see
some of the young guys step up and really
prepare for their new role coming into fall camp later
and obviously summer but I think it’s really
good and just kinda good to see who’s gonna be the
one stepping up this year. – [David] You can’t win a championship right now in the spring. But that doesn’t mean you
can’t practice like a champion, you can’t work in the
weight room like a champion, meetings, everything like that, so you kinda, you start
getting in the mode now for the fall, so when the fall happens and you’re doing it live for real, you’ve already taken one hundred reps of doing it how you’re supposed to do, so it makes it easier in the fall. Last year was last year, saying this, this is a whole new team,
a whole new group of guys, and so it’s just about, you
know, looking at the things, although we did so many
great things last year it’s about looking at the things we didn’t do well last
that we can do better and really focusing on those and honing in, honing in on those aspects. – [Brian] It’s trying to get
everyone to work together, to become one full team
and to work as one unit. And I think on the
offensive side of the ball, it takes a little bit,
of more communication, a little more of my
guys calling people out, when they’re not doing the right thing. And making sure they’re
competing at all times. – [Joe] It’s all about
being a Spartan dog. That’s kinda our mentality
since I’ve been here, and it goes way back. We don’t
let teams run the ball on us. That’s our main goal as
the defense every week, going into game plans. And we can, you know, stop the run, that’s gonna limit a lot
of the explosive plays and it’s gonna carry us
forward throughout the game. It’s gonna help us in
the passing game as well, we’re gonna get pressure
on the quarterback, we’re gonna throw ’em all off
if they can’t run the ball. – [Brian] It only makes us better on the offensive side of the ball, going up against them everyday,
competing against them, trying to make them better
than what they were last year and then obviously them
trying to make us better than what we were last year. I think it works very well for us. – [Mark] There’s a lot that goes into this From winter workouts to strength training to even academics, and balancing
their academic schedule and then to going out
on the football field for spring practice and basically learning a technique or a way to do something and a system of coverages,
fronts or plays. You’re trying to create
some type of pressures on our football team that would sort of enhance their playing and parallel that with, with
maybe game day in the fall. (drums and heavy beats)
