Hardin: A&T football holds season's 1st practice

GREENSBORO North Carolina -- Footballs were flying around outside Aggie Stadium on a hot August afternoon. Coaches were screaming and players were sweating and Rod Broadway was smiling.

The old coach from Oakboro is in his element. He has his program where he wants it, and he’s not changing a thing.

“What’s the old saying?,” he asked, joking in front of the cameras. “We do chicken.”

That’s all.

No frills or fritters. A&T lost its best player but not its identity. This is a reloading season for the Aggies, and Broadway and his quarterback are looking to December.

“We’re going to be a good football team,” he said Tuesday, minutes before the first practice of the season, which starts in 28 days.
