LOOK: Photos from Vols’ first spring practice

    by -

    Tennessee hit the practice field on Thursday afternoon for the first time time this year, as they kicked off Spring practice. The Vols will be working to install a brand new offensive and defensive scheme. Josh Heupel said on Thursday that he loved the energy this group brought to their first practice.

    Due to COVID-19 protocols, media will only be allowed to attend certain practices this spring, so video and photos will be coming from Tennessee, just like how it provided content during the Fall.

    The Vols will be back on the practice field on Saturday afternoon, as they continue working on installing schemes on both sides of the ball. Offensive coordinator Alex Golesh is scheduled to meet with the media following Saturday’s practice.
