We’re hitting the stretch run of college basketball season right now, and opening day for college baseball gets underway tomorrow nationwide. That hasn’t stopped a football team from the state from putting in some work, albeit a little early compared to most programs across the country. The Citadel’s football team has already got spring practice underway. Tonight we welcomed into SportsTalk Cadet head coach Kevin Higgins to update us on his football team.

The Cadets exceeded preseason expectations in the Southern Conference last year, finishing 7-4 in 2012, including back-to-back wins over FCS juggernauts Georgia Southern and Appalachian State.
Coach Higgins updated us on what he’s seen from his players the past few days, what he hopes to accomplish the next few weeks, and how he thinks it should improve his football team in 2o13.
