After only two drill camp weekends, the complete drill is on the field. Never in my 19 years on the field have we learned drill so quickly or performed the first official run through of the season so early. This is no to say it is easy. We worked or butts off on this complex coordinated animation. And they other amazing sign of an incredible season is everyone was there over the course of the camp. Also, we did have a soprano whole that took only a few days to fill and we are back to 58 bodies for 50 horn spots, plus Pit sops Ray and Roger for 60. Below is my closing drill set (yellow highlight)
This will be another historic year. Regardless of our finish, it is shaping up to be one amazing time on the field.
