New field, Big goal: JCSU football has championship aspirations

Johnson C. Smith football usually begins spring practice on its home field, but this season has been different.

McGirt Field’s grass field is being replaced with synthetic turf, its first renovation since opening in 2003.

In the interim, the team held its first three practices at West Charlotte High School. Its latest session was held at Bank of America Stadium on Thursday.

JCSU football head coach Maurice Flowers said the team views each practice as a “road game.” Coincidentally, all seven losses in Flowers’ 2-7 debut campaign last season were away from home.

This year, he’s expecting a different result.

“We’re not the same team that finished the season last year,” he said. “We’re looking to contend for a CIAA championship.”
