First Day of Training Camp

It’s always exciting and chaotic the first day of camp and this year was just that. With a bunch of new faces, some I have met from meetings and workouts, others who I have no clue who they are yet. But for a first day it was there! From going over the basics again for all the new guys to the hitting drills at the end the intensity was there.

For me I need to get back to the little things on footwork and getting used to throwing so many balls again. The smaller mistakes I notice on myself, but hopefully they will be fixed sooner rather then later.

It was exciting though we had six running backs there that are all great players ( Yes running back lane)! We have a few more that missed and will come tomorrow. Then we added some more talent at the WR position and a few more solid OL that will help us. The hardest part will be getting everyone involved and get some touches and let the skill guys make plays for us.

Looking over at the defense we added some more talent I think this year. Some new guys mixed with returning guys, and even a few older Irish players returning should add a nice mix and make for a great defense.

For me at one point though looking around a seeing around sixty, maybe even more, guys busting their butt to find a niche, or a starting spot, as we are all working towards a team goal is amazing. Hopefully everyone comes each day looking to get better and with the great attitudes that guys had last night. It’s tough to mesh as many new guys you get each year in semi-pro with the limited amount of time we have to work with (12 practices).

For me I think I like that target on our back this season! We have the talent now we just need to become a true team.

But I am just trying to figure out how a QB gets a four inch bruise on his forehead day one lol. Next time I should stay out of Oklahoma’s, but I do like to hit.

Day 2 here we come!
