Al Groh has put his team through 15 vigorous workout sessions during the course of the past three weeks, and tomorrow, Virginia's spring football season comes to an end with the annual Spring Game.
The annual scrimmage not only gives Groh and his coaching staff a chance to see what lies ahead, but also gives Cavalier fans the chance to get a sneak preview of their 2008 team. Peter Lalich and Scott Deke will continue to battle for the starting quarterback spot, and Kevin Ogletree will see some action as well, his first since tearing his ACL during spring practice in 2007. The defensive line is also a question mark, as Virginia looks to fill the shoes of the departed Chris Long and Jeffrey Fitzgerald.
Kickoff for the Spring Game is set for 2:00, but the festivities begin at noon, as the Spring Festival begins at Scott Stadium. Fans can enjoy food, games, and kids can join CBS19's Marc Davis and Dave Strumpf as their guest football experts at the CBS19 Broadcasters Booth.
