Back to Where it All Started

Today was a typical nice December day in sunny Tucson Arizona! We were back over at Salpointe High School where it all began this past August. This time though when we are done we will go to San Diego for a week of fun at the Holiday Bowl, instead of heading off to Fort Huachuca for more training camp.

There are many reasons it is nice to go to a bowl game, but one of the best is the fact that your younger players can get a lot of extra work in preparation for the future. Some of our younger players that are red shirting this year are already showing off their skills during bowl practice.

The managers arrived early this morning (7am) to get everything set up over at Salpointe before team picture. As usual, they did a great job of getting everything done and then hustled back over to the stadium for the team picture.

Below are some pictures of today's practice:
