The Alabama A&M football team is preparing for the MEAC-SWACChallenge but after Wednesday's practice, Head Coach James Spady took on another challenge.
Responding to a former player at Nevada where he formerly coached, Spady took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge at midfield – with the help of several willing players.
After the ice cold treatment, Spady challenged two of his assistant coaches – Reggie Johnson and Andy Fuller – and South Carolina State Head Coach Buddy Pugh.The challenge capped a lively 2 ½-hour practice Wednesday that began on the grass practice field outside Louis Crews Stadium.After about an hour, the Bulldogs crossed the street and resumed working out on the artificial turf of Louis Crews Stadium. The return to grass was to help get accustomed to a natural field, which the Bulldogs will be playing on in Orlando in the 10th annual MEAC-SWAC Challenge on Aug. 31. The team will leave next Thursday (Aug. 28) to fly to Orlando to play North Carolina A&T at Bright House Networks Stadium. The game will be televised on ESPN with a 10:45 a.m. CST kickoff
