uapbPINE BLUFF, Ark.- A highly competitive scrimmage brought an official close to the University of Arkansas Pine Bluff football teams’ first week of training camp. UAPB Head Coach Monte Coleman was pleased with what he saw during his teams’ first scrimmage but cited a need for overall improvement in the coming weeks.

“I’ll give the offense a ‘B’ on performance and the defense would get a ‘C,’” said Coleman after watching his team compete against each other on Saturday afternoon. “I thought they threw the ball well,” added Coleman. “We still have some mishandles of balls, but all that is going to be corrected by Sept. 5th.”

The Golden Lions will return to the practice field on Monday at 2:15 pm. The team will host its second scrimmage of fall camp on Thursday afternoon. UAPB will open their season at Golden Lions Stadium on Saturday, September 5th as they host the University of Arkansas-Monticello.
Season tickets are still available starting at the unbelievably low price of $55. To order your season ticket package call (870) 575-8675 or (870) 575-7930.


  1. Everybody in the WEST predicted UAPB to be next to last or last . When you pick UAPB last thats when they play up to their best. If the O-Line come together UAPB will be force. Mickey Dean is looking good and thats why the Philadelphia Eagles Scouts are in Pine Bluff looking at Mickey Dean. People still think Mickey couldn’t play but this season Dean will break all SWAC rushing records. Go UAPB.
