ECU Football kicks off spring practices

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. -
It was a beautiful start to spring football today as the Pirates begin their preparations for the 2014 season in the American Conference.
Expectations are high again this year, and they probably should be. ECU was in the running for the Conference USA title last year and this year they return the majority of their talent.

Today we got to see that talent for the very first time since their December bowl win. The Pirates were certainly flying around on a sunny day at the Cliff Moore Practice Complex. Quarterback Shane Carden is back to lead East Carolina and he's joined by many stars on both sides of the ball.

Coach Ruffin McNeill is excited to see the offseason growth of his players but does have a few concerns. He hopes his upcoming senior class can be leaders just like last year's seniors.
