Players Reflect On A Productive and Physical Camp
As the final whistle of Training Camp sounded Wednesday afternoon, the team bid farewell to both their fans and Lehigh, the campus that has been their home for nearly a month.
Wednesday marked the final day of what was, for many Eagles players, a productive yet grueling Training Camp. As the players exited the field of Lehigh for the final time this summer, they reflected on all they've accomplished over the past few weeks.
"This is probably one of the toughest Training Camps I've been through in my career," said veteran guard
Mathis wasn't the only one who felt this way. The tempo of camp was faster and more physical than many players said they had felt in the past.
"This whole camp has been rough, probably the hardest camp I've been in," said running back
But at the other end of the hard work is the camaraderie that comes with grinding through the dog days. This didn't go unnoticed by the team.
"We achieved the goal of coming together and getting better as a team," said linebacker
Leaving Lehigh means the season is nearly here. It also means getting into the routine of the regular season. That starts with getting home and back into a normal routine.
"It's always nice to be able to sleep in your bed every night when you're going to work like that every day," said tackle
"That's the main thing, getting out of these dorm rooms," said safety
