On the fifth day of practice the Jackson State Tigers wore full pads for the first time during fall camp. Thankfully for the Tigers an overcast day provided the team with much cooler than normal temperatures for the first day of August. The first half of the two hour session saw the Tigers continue to work on technique and fundamentals. The team gradually got more physical as practice went on, although the contact increased players were not allowed to tackle to the ground. During the team portion of practice saw a good give and take on both sides of the ball.
