Football Ends Training Camp with Two Sessions on Tuesday

The Coastal Carolina University football team wrapped up its 2008 training camp Tuesday, August 19 with two sessions. The Chanticleers prepared for its fourth and final scrimmage on Wednesday and participated in the last of its 24 practices in the camp.   The Chanticleers worked on seven-on-seven and 11-on-11 drills toward the end of the evening practice and finished practice by working on the running game. After practice, former Coastal Carolina players Adrain Grady and Anthony Steele talked to the team about their experience playing at Coastal Carolina and how fast the time goes from the freshman to the senior year.   “Anytime I see one of our former players, I say ‘Share it with them, talk from your heart because you have been in their shoes,’” Coastal Carolina Head Coach David Bennett said. “They’re about to start classes tomorrow and we get to scrimmage. They feel like they accomplished something, but there are 54,000 college football players all over America. What’s going to separate one team from another? It’s how hard you work.   Bennett also talked about the camp as a whole.   “The offense has improved since the first scrimmage. Have they improved enough to compete with a Penn State? The toughest opponent will be our first opponent in front of 110,000 people.”   Coastal Carolina ends the training camp with a talent show Tuesday night. The first day of classes will be on Wednesday, with the fourth scrimmage in Brooks Stadium that day at 4 p.m.
