Texas State football completed its fifth spring practice on April 1.

This was a more controlled session designed to focus on fundamentals and tempo, while in the practice setting.

Outside linebackers coach Tevin Mims believes that the players in his group are set up for success but need to keep putting the work in.

"This spring has been awesome," Mims says. "You look at guys like John Emmanuel, Issiah Nixon and new kid DeMarrquese Hayes, just getting those guys going and familiar with the playbook. All those kids in my room have a skill set that can play at a winning level."

The team will finish this week of spring ball with a scrimmage on April 3.
