Warhawk Football Team Reports to Campus Tuesday
MONROE, La. - Head Coach Todd Berry's third season at the helm of the ULM football program officially began Tuesday as he and his staff welcomed both returning players and newcomers to campus.
As part of Tuesday's move-in procedures, the squad will have a compliance meeting, eat dinner, have physicals, be issued equipment and go through their first team meeting prior to the start of fall camp Wednesday.
All practices are closed to the general public and credentialed media are allowed to attend the first 30 minutes of practice only. Players and coaches will be available for interviews following each practice session.
The team will be split up during the first four days of fall camp. On day one and two, they will be broken into groups of newcomers and returners. The next two days, the Warhawks will be divided into a maroon group and a gold group. All eight practices over the first four days will take place at the practice field.
The team will take a break from practice Sunday, Aug. 12, as they will be on hand to sign autographs and take pictures with fans inside Fant-Ewing Coliseum (5:30 p.m. - 6:45 p.m.). Players will also be available for media interviews during the 75-minute event.
The team will return to the practice field Monday afternoon as they work toward their first of two scrimmages during fall camp. The scrimmage inside Malone Stadium (Aug. 18) is open to the public and following the event, fans are encouraged to stick around following the scrimmage as ULM will utilize its state of the art HD video board with a free family-friendly movie showing. Also, fans will have the opportunity to "Select-A-Seat" during the scrimmage by previewing seats marked as available for purchase during the Warhawks' action.
