Training Camp Tidbits
Camp Must Have: Television
Strangest thing you've seen someone bring to camp: Kris Jenkins brought a kitten to camp. It did not go over well. I guess he had just gotten it and didn't want to leave it at home. I think it lasted about a day before they made him send it back home.
Person you most hang with during camp: Jerard Rabb, one of Orange County's finest.
Camp Paranoia: Getting cut I guess.
What you miss most about home when you are in camp: Being able to sleep in my own bed
Best Singer: Tight end J.J. Finley singing Usher. He stopped at one point and I thought he didn't know any more of the words, but he kept going. He surprised me.
Worst Singer: Chilo Rachal. He tried to be funny with the Baby Back ribs commercial, but he just didn't pull it off.
Best Camp Moment: John Fox once broke camp a day early. I think he planned it all along but it was great.
Worst Camp Memory: Staying in the dorms. They were terrible dorms. You had to use a communal bathroom all the way down the hall. There were spiders everywhere. It was just bad.
Best Camp Brawl: It was a pretty good one with Moran Norris up in Napa against the Raiders. But, Ken Lucas and Steve Smith. Even though I wasn't there, I heard enough about it from my old teammates.
Hardest Camp Drill: Ropes, because they are high and you are already tired enough during camp.
WHAT HE SAID
"It's just a necessary evil. It's something you've got to do, but this camp really has been a lot better for me than in past years. Staying at a hotel is better, the weather out here is great. The hotel is just a few minutes away so I get some ice on my knees and then get some rest. I've also really been able to get a lot of good work done in this offense, and learning it inside out."
WHAT OTHERS SAID
"He's been outstanding. He's realized what we're asking of him and he's working very hard. He came in for camp with a list of questions written down for me so I know he definitely prepared during his time off. He just needs to continue to progress the way he has and he should have a very promising year." - Running backs coach Tony Nathan
