'Jacks Pumped For Spring Game Saturday
April 11, 2014
The Clint Conque era at Stephen F. Austin has officially begun as the Lumberjacks have nearly wrapped up their 15-practice spring schedule. In the final installment of our SFA Spring Football Practice Report, we will preview Saturday's Spring Game, as well as get coach Conque's thoughts on the conclusion of the spring workouts.
NACOGDOCHES, Texas – Stephen F. Austin will put the cap on its 2014 spring football season when the Lumberjacks host its annual Spring Game Saturday at Homer Bryce Stadium. The game kicks off at 6:30 p.m. and admission is free as it marks the final chance for Lumberjack fans to see their team in action before the 2014 season.
With head coach Clint Conque running the helm, the format of the SFA Spring Game will be slightly different than in years past. The game will feature four quarters with a running 12 minute clock that will stop only after a scoring play, as well as regular game protocol during the final two minutes of each half.
The scoring for the game is modified as well, giving the traditional six points for a touchdown, three points for a field goal and one point for a PAT. However there will be additional points available to the offense and a handful of opportunities for the SFA defensive units to tally points as well.

A number of festivities will highlight the afternoon as well, beginning with the Little Jack Family Fun Zone getting underway at 3 p.m. in the Early Childhood Research Center parking lot. Tailgating for the Spring Game is encouraged leading up to the 6:30 p.m. kickoff.
The SFA marketing department will also be hosting a “Select-A-Seat” promotion, showing fans some of the best seats available for the upcoming 2014 football season. Fans that either purchase or renew their season tickets will be entered into a drawing to win a replica SFA football helmet autographed by coach Conque.
Season tickets for the 2014 football season begin at $77 and $38.50 for SFA faculty and staff as the ‘Jacks have seven home games, including tilts against Central Arkansas, Southeastern Louisiana and Northwestern State.
