Mocs End Spring Football Friday Night With Spring Showcase

( CHATTANOOGA—The Chattanooga Mocs are on display Friday night in Finley Stadium. The 2023 spring roster takes the field for the Spring Showcase presented by Food City.

The Mocs are breaking it down between two teams with the ones vs. the twos. The roster card is attached above.

“I think it’s a good opportunity for us,” Coach Rusty Wright began. “I think it’s been a good spring. The guys have liked going earlier (in the calendar). I think we’ll have an opportunity to see some new guys which, you know, that’s the biggest thing in the spring is try to find people who can help us and see how far some guys have come and figure out what we got.”

It’s the 15th and final spring practice day with the Spring Showcase presented by Food City. It’s been a productive process for the group.

“It’s been a good 14 practices for our guys,” Wright added leading into day 15 and the spring showcase. “We are trying out guys in different spots and doing some different things, but I think that that’s what it’s for (in the spring). It a chance to see who can do what and where.

“You know, every once in a while, you get a guy nicked up or dinged up, and you’re going to have to move some people around. This is a time you get to see some things and know what you got without it actually costing you (in a game).

“It’s been a time where we’ve moved some guys around on both sides of the ball with different groupings just to see how we can maximize some things with different personnel to see how those guys play with each other and interact.”
