The Arizona Wildcats have announced that Glendale Community College will be the location for next Saturday’s spring football practice in the Phoenix area.
Arizona is expected to do some scrimmaging for the first time spring during the practice, which will start at noon and last about two hours.
Rodriguez told TucsonCitizen.com last month that part of the reason to scrimmage in Phoenix is to “make our presence felt in the Valley, but also to provide a service for all the fans we have in that area. … It’s a chance for the local fans to see some of the players and see some of the things we’re doing.”
He added: “And I think being in a different environment might be a neat experience for the guys.”
The school announced that the practice will include “Fan Fest” activities, including prize giveaways, a 30-minute post-practice autograph session with Rodriguez and a chance to see the Territorial Cup, which belongs to Arizona this year because of its victory over Arizona State.
The Cats can’t scrimmage in Arizona Stadium this spring because of construction in the north end zone. The spring game will be held at Kino Stadium on April 14, the school announced last week.
Arizona practiced twice — on March 5 and March 7 — before taking adjourning for the university’s spring break. The Wildcats will hold its Pro Day in front of NFL scouts on Monday and resume practice on Wednesday.
Glendale Community College is located at 6000 West Olive Ave.
