Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - NDSU now has two practice facilities with artificial turf.

Today, the Bison practiced for the first time on the new Astrotuf field. This was the field that was at the Dome for 1 game last season before being replaced because of a problem with the underlay.

One of the players standing out for NDSU early in camp is converted quarterback Esley Thorton, now fitting in at linebacker, and ready to make his mark.

Esley Thorton – NDSU Junior Linebacker: “I had the 5 month season last year, came in after fall camp got a lot of reps and game situations watching Beck Littlejohn and Olson getting spring and this fall double repping I have way more reps under my belt and that much more comfortable.”
