The Drake football team wrapped up spring drills looking forward to the 2004 season. The Bulldogs conducted their final practice of the spring on Monday and have 18 starters back from last year’s team that finished with a record of six-and-six.Drake coach Rob Ash says you sometimes worry about a veteran team thinking spring ball is anticlimatic. But, he says the team has worked hard. Ash must find a replacement for standout running back Jonathan Taylor who finished his career with more than 32-hundred yards of rushing.Whoever wins the running back spot will join an experienced offense that shoulds score a lot of points. Ash says not only will the Bulldgos have experience, they should have more depth as well.Drake will open up next season at Southwest Missouri State on September second.
