  • Football Ends Training with Spring Game    

On Friday, Fordham Football held the last of 15 practices in the 2017 spring season on Jack Coffey Field. Head coach Andrew Breiner ended the practice session with a seven-on-seven scrimmage. This was also referred to and promoted by Fordham Football as their Spring Game. The Rams now go without practice until August, which is when their 2017 fall camp is held. Fordham’s first game is on Friday night, September 1 at Army West Point. This spring season comes after a promising 2017 recruiting class. Featuring seven offensive players and seven defensive players, in addition to two special team players, the incoming freshmen range from linemen and linebackers to wide receivers and even a long snapper.
