FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – It's never too early to get your football fix and Northern Arizona has its Pro Day and spring practice schedule coming up soon.

This Friday, Northern Arizona will host a Pro Day workout for professional scouts. The day will begin at 9 a.m. in the weight room and transition to the Recreation South Fields for workouts. Events include the Vertical Jump, Broad Jump, Bench Press, 40's, Shuttle, L Drill, and Individual Workouts.

Many former Lumberjacks will be participating in Pro Day, including all-conference honorees Siupeli Anau, Eric Rodriguez and Jake Thomas.

NAU will kick off its spring schedule this time next week with practice No. 1 at 4 p.m. on the practice fields across from the Walkup Skydome. The Lumberjacks will practice 15 times over the five-week span. NAU will have a pair of scrimmages along the way on April 8 and 15, as it will cap off its spring practice schedule with its annual Spring Game on Saturday, April 22 at 2 p.m. The game will be played in the Walkup Skydome and will televised once again by FOX Sports AZ.

The Lumberjacks look forward to the return of All-American quarterback Case Cookus, along with All-American and First Team All-Conference performer Emmanuel Butler.
