Fall Football Camp Opens At Tennessee Tech

Tennessee Tech's football program opens its Fall Camp on Monday, and the team begins practices Tuesday morning at 7:30 a.m. The first full padded practice is on Friday and the first scrimmage is Sunday, August 15, at 5 p.m. Tech will host a second scrimmage on Saturday, August 21, as part of the annual Gathering of Eagles. Coach Watson Brown greeted some 90 players Sunday night and got them checked into camp, and depth appears to be one of the team's strengths as the Golden Eagles look to build on a second-place finish last year in the Ohio Valley Conference with a 5-3 league mark. Tech was 6-5 overall last year and has been picked for a fourth place finish in the league's preseason poll.
