The Florida Memorial University football team held its first full practice of the new academic year on Monday. FMU, who is resuming football after a 61-year hiatus, has high hopes for their 2020 campaign under the direction of head coach Timothy Harris, who is entering his first year with the program.

The Lions were on campus for the first day as they practiced at Harry T. Moore Field because Betty T. Ferguson Complex is not yet open to the public.

After months of Zoom meetings and weeks of voluntary workouts, the players showed significant retention levels going through their first team practice together. Since early March, FMU had to resort to making most of its program progress virtually during physical distancing throughout the pandemic.

Full pads aren’t scheduled to be put on until practice No. 5. Until then, players will continue to reacclimate to football in the Florida heat and humidity while creating championship habits under the guidance of the coaching staff.
