Practice facility collapses at South Alabama

The University of South Alabama Jaguars football team won’t be holding workouts in their new practice facility anytime soon.

USA athletic director Joel Erdmann announced last week that the Jaguar Training Facility, which began construction this spring, had completely collapsed. No one was injured in the accident.

Bob Lowry, media relations director for the school, confirmed the collapse in a statement. “At approximately 2:15 p.m. on Saturday, July 22, the structure of the Jaguar Training Center, a covered athletics practice facility that is under construction on the University of South Alabama campus, fell within the construction limits of the site. No workers were present in that area at the time,” Lowry said.

The cause of the collapse is still under investigation.
