The Football Salukis had plenty of opportunity to showcase their abilities at the annual Spring Game

Many of fresh faces on the field for the Salukis including junior transfer Karé Lyles, he joins redshirt freshmen Nic Baker, Austin Reid and two others battling it out for the quarterback position... 

And on the other side of the ball, the Saluki defense is settling in under the direction of new defensive coordinator Jason Petrino.

"This is a great opportunity for our defensive staff, to implement the way they're going to practice, the expectations. For them to get an idea of our players, and who fits where in their pieces, and then for our players to get down that scheme. you're not anywhere close in 15 practices doing that, but it's a great start, and I'm excited about this group," said SIU head football coach Nick Hill.

The Salukis will have one more practice this spring to tune up mistakes made this past week, before heading into the summer offseason.
