Tech offense with big second scrimmage

By on April 11, 2015 out the progress on one of the most respected coaches around, Frank Beamer.  His offense is starting to kick it into high gear.  The take-away from this is you need to make sure your offense is clicking early in the season so the team gets off to a fast start.
