The weather gave the Southern football team a break Sunday afternoon.
The Jaguars practiced five times from Wednesday through Friday, then went through a two-hour scrimmage in challenging heat and humidity Saturday morning. That concluded the most intense stretch of preseason camp so far.
But rain pounded away on the Southern practice field Sunday, leading coach Dawson Odums to call off the workout scheduled for 4:45 p.m. The team met to review film of the scrimmage.
The Seymour Gymnasium, where the Jaguars conducted their first practice of camp while rain fell on the practice field, was unavailable Sunday because it’s being used for fall registration, which begins Monday.
Southern is scheduled to return to the practice field Monday for its second-to-last two-a-days of camp.
