The Dawgs are back in town and started practice on Tuesday night, getting acclimated to the field and their new teammates.

Returning Coach Steve Luby said, “I think we’ve got a really good group of kids. They’re excited to be here. They’re obviously very talented. I think they’re a very hard-working blue-collar group.”

He went on to say that he hopes they’re going to learn a couple of things. “I think Travis got us a great squad, to be honest.”

Game time is Thursday night, the 30th, at 6:35 p.m. If you can’t make it, tickets for the live streaming of the game are available at
