Duke Football Spring Practice Starts March 2nd

DURHAM, N.C. – Duke head coach David Cutcliffe announced Thursday the program's spring practice dates as well as the date for the annual Spring Showcase.

The Blue Devils will have 15 practices this spring, highlighted by the Spring Showcase on Saturday, April 4th. Additional information on the Spring Showcase will be released at a later date.

Cutcliffe enters his 13th year at the helm of the Blue Devil program. Earlier this offseason, Cutcliffe announced he has assumed the offensive play calling duties, making him one of 10 head coaches at the FBS level to serve as both head coach and coordinator/offensive play-caller.

Also, Cutcliffe welcomed two new assistant coaches to the Duke staff early in 2020 with the additions of Greg Frey (offensive line) and Chris Hampton  (cornerbacks).

The Blue Devils return 43 lettermen to its 2020 roster, including tight end  Noah Gray, wide receiver and kick returner Damond Philyaw-Johnson, and defensive end Chris Rumph II, all who garnered All-America status in 2019.

Practices are closed to the public, but fans are encouraged to follow Duke's social media platforms using the handle @DukeFOOTBALL to keep up with the Blue Devils throughout the spring. Periodic updates also will be available via GoDuke.com.

The Blue Devils open 2020 at home for three straight games when Middle Tennessee (Sept. 5), Elon (Sept. 12), and Charlotte (Sept. 17) come to Brooks Field at Wallace Wade Stadium. Duke also will host Wake Forest (Oct. 3), North Carolina (Oct. 17), Virginia (Nov. 13), and Virginia Tech (Nov. 21) this upcoming season.
