What's your favorite part of training camp?
A: First and foremost is the "Christmas Day experience" when everyone arrives and is together. We get to see all the hardworking in recruiting pay off. It's fun to do the "eye test" to see who has been working out.
My second favorite part is the team meals. We don't always get to eat together during the school year because of class schedules and such. Having your family at the dinner table, busting chops, and telling stories are always fun. There is a great environment of inclusion in our team. It doesn't matter where you are from or what your background, you are part of our family.
The final thing that is special about camp is the stuff that goes on off the field together. The social activities, the community service day, the winners manual activities, our trip to the beach, whatever else happens, I just enjoy getting to see new relationships come together and watching our team become one.
