FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (April 10, 2018) - The Northern Arizona football team returned to the turf for the ninth workout of the spring practice season on Tuesday afternoon at the J. Lawrence walkup Skydome in Flagstaff.

Tuesday's session saw the Lumberjacks practice in helmets and shoulder pads and featured special teams work with the punt and field goal units as well as a 10-minute 7-on-7 and a 20-minute 11-on-11 period.

Both sides of the ball posted some impressive plays during both the partial and full team portions of the practice.  Tight end Jonathan Baldwin showed his versatility with catches at both short and long distances.  Senior wide receiver Emmanuel Butler flashed some speed on an end around play that picked up significant yardage against the Lumberjack defensive unit and running backs Cory Young and Aramis Aldredge found some rushing lanes.

Defensively, Dyvine Wallace and Brandon Boyce registered sacks for the 'Jacks defense, while the secondary proved tough to get yardage against through the air throughout the 11-on-11 period.

The 'Jacks will return to the practice field at the Skydome on Thursday, April 12 from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. MST.

Each of NAU's spring practice sessions are open to the public free of charge.

Quotes: NAU Head Coach Jerome Souers 
"We are getting to the second half of spring and opportunities to look at personnel or schematic variations are reducing.  We looked at some of them today and when you do that it mucks up practice a little bit.  We did get some good tape today.  We had a chance to see a lot of guys in the second and third groups.  We were missing some guys today at various positions, but that gave us a chance to look at a lot of other players today.  That was good and positive but it can also lead to some inconsistent play.  I really love the competitiveness of this group.  Each time we went into a competitive situation today the guys responded and responded really well with a raised focus, passion and intensity.  Opportunities to show that is always something we are building towards."
