Minor football updates: Jersey numbers, downtown photo shoot

A couple minor changes to your football program…

— New linebacker Xavier Peters will wear No. 5 for the defense. The Florida State transfer is still seeking immediate eligibility from the NCAA.

DeAndre Square, a sophomore linebacker, changed his number from No. 43 to No. 17. Square was eighth on the team in tackles last year with 35 tackles, 3.5 TFL and a sack.

— Wide receiver Josh Ali changed his number from No. 81 to No. 6. A junior this year, Ali is second among returning players in receptions last year, behind only Lynn Bowden.

— New backup quarterback Sawyer Smith will wear the No. 12. The incoming grad transfer out of Troy takes the number from Gunnar Hoak, who grad transferred out of the program.

Now that you’re caught up, here’s a video of a photo shoot the team had downtown yesterday:

Camp starts later this week!
