FORT WAYNE, Ind. (FORT WAYNE'S NBC) - The Saint Francis Cougars eager to pounce back onto Bishop D'Arcy Stadium after missing spring football, due to COVID-19.

Now, the boys in royal blue and white are trying to make up for lost time, despite the pandemic still having an impact on play.

The workouts are held strictly outdoors with social distancing still a priority.

Even so, the team is just happy to be back together.

"Working on our relationships, still working out, that's what counts right now," Saint Francis quarterback Matt Crable said at Monday's practice.

Head Coach Kevin Donley missed his guys and is happy to be back to some form of normal.

"I have learned to give socially-distanced hugs," Donley said.

"I haven't seen most of these guys, since March."

"I am shocked most of them have stayed in good shape."

Saint Francis will be eligible to return to a full practice schedule in mid-August.
