Football to host Winter Coaches Clinic on Feb. 20
Fresh off its first Pioneer Football League title, JU football will host its annual Winter Coaches Clinic on Friday, Feb. 20 from 1 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. at D.B. Milne Field on the campus of Jacksonville University.
The free clinic is designed for football coaches interested in an open forum to share ideas and philosophies. JU head coach Kerwin Bell and his staff will explain their system and how they implement their philosophy from the playbook and coaches meetings on to the practice field. All coaches in attendance are encouraged to ask questions in order to find the best way to incorporate these ideals into their respective programs.
A "Meet & Greet" will start things off at 1 p.m. followed by a welcome talk by Coach Bell at 1:15 p.m. After breaking off into sessions with individual JU coaches at 1:30 p.m., a practice session will conclude the event from 3-5:30 p.m.
Along with their first PFL title, the 2008 Dolphins tallied a program records with a 9-3 overall record, a 7-1 mark in conference play and a seven-game winning streak. In only his second year with the program, Bell was named 2008 PFL "Coach of the Year."
