Fall Camp Central

It’s Wednesday. Full “Survival Mode” initiated.

Practices have ramped up for the defending national champions this week with two-a-days and sessions at the off-site Coffey Road fields. 

“At the end of the day it’s football,” junior Mike Thomas said about the grind of training camp. “You’re going to find the guys who love to compete and go hard.”

Snack Pack! You’re the coolest!

Coach Urban Meyer provided the team with a post-practice snack on Tuesday.

Carrots, sugar, juice box … THE SNACK OF CHAMPIONS!

We make sure our players are taken care of with a training camp post-practice snack pack for recovery.
