Midway through Camp - Seasons are Upon Us

Aug 14, 2013

We are at the midway point of football camp and my thoughts are:

1. There is no comparison between last year's team and this year's team. Practices are up tempo. The pace has been accelerated by the leadership of the team knowing expectations and pushing each other. This has allowed the coaches to coach and work with the players on technique and other things they couldn't teach or push a year ago. This will be an exciting year.
2. The week, we also have taken hundreds of headshots and action photos in preparation for the upcoming year. It is exciting to be able to highlight the great folks who represent FAU.
3. We have added a new addition to the office after bidding Dale Long farewell in late spring. I'm happy to welcome Brandon Goodwin to our staff and I look forward to the many talents he brings to the office and in the coming weeks you will see announcements on the services we will offer our fans through the website. Each day we tweet the number of days left until the kick-off and each day I let out a sigh knowing how much we need to accomplish between now and then. So, I'm going to sign off for today and encourage you to check out the schedule. Teams are getting underway. Women's soccer will get underway this Friday at FGCU, under the direction of newly hired Head Coach Patrick Baker.

Let's Go Owls!
