Equipment Room has Special Guest Today

Amongst all of the hustle and bustle of getting the team ready for 2009 Training Camp, we had the Morning Trio of Max, Shannon and Porkchop of KIIM FM of Tucson stop by and pay us a visit in the equipment room. They have always been big supporters of the Wildcats and they wanted to check in to see what was going on. They love having Coach Mark Stoops on their show every Monday morning during the football season. I was so excited about having them stop by that I forgot to get pictures. Oh well, maybe next time.

We are almost done fitting all of the players for training camp in their Riddell helmets and shoulder pads.

One of the premier players in the Pac 10, Earl Mitchell of Northshore High School in the Houston Texas area, stopped by to get his gear checked out. Earl is one fierce dude on the field, but he won't say two words when he is in here.

We continue to put barcodes on all the new gear from Nike. Right now Tim has a couple of the guys getting barcodes on the golf team gear. Our golf team has their own contract with Nike in addition to the All School deal. Needless to say, we are doing alot of barcoding this time of the year.

Willie Salzman, Palo Alto CA, showed up a few days early and has volunteered to help out before the managers officially report on Friday. Willie is without a doubt our most spirited student manager!!!! The thing I love the most about Willie is his passion and enthusiasm about Wildcat Football. He loves this team!!! That is why we gave him the job of handing Coach Stoops the game balls for handing out after each win. No one deserves to be in the middle of that than Willie Salzman. Willie took summer school in the country of Chile this summer.

Enjoy today's pictures:
