Football’s Spring Game tonight

Caleb Raubenholt

The Kent State football team will kick off its annual Spring Game at 7 tonight at Dix Stadium.

In the Flashes’ two inter-squad scrimmages this spring, the team’s running game has shown promise in sophomore Dri Archer and junior Jacquise Terry putting up carrying the ball well so far. Senior Eugene Jarvis, who was granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA after a season-ending kidney injury sidelined him last season, has seen limited action in the team’s contact drills.

Kent State coach Doug Martin has expressed his confidence behind sophomore quarterback Spencer Keith’s continued improvements this spring, adding that he will be one of the best quarterbacks in the Mid-American Conference.

Four former Flashes will be attending the game, including New Orleans Saints defensive back Usama Young and the Indianapolis Colts Danny Muir, who faced off in Super Bowl XLIV. Detroit Lions defensive back Jack Williams and Cincinnati Bengals defensive back Rico Murray will join them at a special pregame presentation beginning at 6.

Admission is free.
