TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Florida A&M hit the field twice on Thursday, and head coach Alex Wood said he is pleased so far with the Rattlers efforts.

It is no secret Wood has had some work to do, as he looks to turn around a 3-9 program. As far as the offense goes, he said everyone is starting to gel together, and the quarterback race? It's closer than ever.

Wood said Carson Royal, who saw the most action in the spring game, is still in the lead, but Kenny Coleman is looking better and better each day.

Wood will not name a starter until game week, but the most important thing is the offense is starting to vibe.

"I think the chemistry is coming on," Wood said after the Rattlers morning session. "We've got some new receivers but they've adapted quickly. I think those guys spend some time off of the field, so that's important as well in developing relationships and a bond as you talked about. We're pleased, but again, I can't emphasize enough, we're not ready to play yet. We got a lot of work to do but we're looking forward to it."
