Inclement Weather Forces Senior Bowl Practices Indoors

Posted by Mike Wobschall on January 26, 2012 – 1:34 pm

A nasty thunderstorm complete with tornado warnings swept through the Mobile, Alabama area on Thursday morning and ultimately resulted in both the North and South squads moving their practices away from Ladd-Peebles Stadium and to the indoors.

The North team has the morning practice each day and this morning everyone had arrived at the stadium in anticipation of trying to squeeze at least a portion of the workout in before the storms arrived. But only moments before practice was set to begin at 9:30 a.m. CT, Vikings and North team Head Coach Leslie Frazier wisely decided to move practice back to the Arthur R. Outlaw Mobile Convention Center, which is attached to the hotel in which both teams are staying.

Credit goes to Frazier and to the Senior Bowl operations staff for a smooth and timely transition from the stadium to the convention center while a violent storm began to bear down on the area. The North team arrived inside the convention center and the coaching staff took the squad through a thorough walk-through before breaking for lunch and then team meetings.

It was announced around 12:30 p.m. CT that the South team would also be holding its practice indoors.
