Exciting Day Today!!!

Well, the day got started for us in the equipment room very early this morning. Today was the first day of winter workouts, run by Coach Edmonds and his GREAT strength and conditioning staff.

Coach Stoops and the Strength and Conditioning staff put a huge emphasis on this portion of the process! The players work very hard for Coach Ed and Mike Stoops! That has been true from the first day they got here!

Then, after we got in from the practice field, we already had a couple of faxes in from High School players who faxed their National Letters of Intent to play for the Wildcats waiting for us in the football office. The coaches feel very good about all the players who signed and faxed in today. We have a reception tonight where many of our fans will come and listen to Coach Stoops talk about each player.

I feel certain all of these players will turn out to be great players and wonderful citizens, just like all of the other players that Coach Stoops has brought into this program.

Below are some pictures from early this morning.

Managers got here at 4:30 this morning to get these workouts ready for the team today:
