HATTIESBURG, Miss. - Southern Miss football is getting closer to its first game of the season against Kentucky.
The team worked hard all throughout spring ball to prepare themselves for what lies ahead. A lot of positions are open, especially with the offensive line and quarterback spot.
Head coach, Jay Hopson is pleased to see his team's progress so far this offseason.
"The good thing coming out of spring I thought we were fairly healthy. We had a couple injuries, but hopefully we'll get those young men back. But, I thought we finished on a physical note in the Spring Game. But we know there's a constant journey and we got to work hard through summer. Quarterback is a battle. Competition makes the world go around. I thought the offensive line had a great spring. Some young freshmen I thought had some really good camps. So, we just got to keep building," said Hopson.
