Rocky Mountain College is planning to launch its spring football drills on Tuesday afternoon -- weather permitting, of course.

Coach Brian Armstrong is expecting to have 90 players on hand.

"We need to develop some depth," Armstrong said of his immediate priorities this spring. "Teach some scheme and be fundamentally sound in what we do."

The Battlin' Bears are also hoping to get outside on Thursday and Saturday this week.

Rocky was planning to start last week, but rain and snow prevented that.

Armstrong said Rocky's spring game will be on Saturday, April 12 at 1 p.m. on Herb Klindt Field.

He said the Bears will likely conduct a few more practices after the spring game is over.

"Offensively we've got to get some young wide receivers developed," Armstrong said. "We'll have three new guys in there on the offensive line. We're going to try to get some guys to gel there.

"Defensively there's going to be lots of opportunities at linebacker after graduating six seniors."
