Fourth Day Of Camp In The Books

Aug. 12, 2010

The Boston College football team practiced on Shea Field for the fourth day, this time in cooler weather reminiscent of early-fall football games. The Eagles were still in Under Armour shells and shorts, continuing to fine tune the offensive and defensive teams.

Though the fourth day of camp featured more hitting, the real contact will come tomorrow when the team will dress in full pads for the first time. Head Coach Frank Spaziani joked with media yesterday, telling them that "real football" begins Friday.

By now the players appear accustomed to the way camp is run. When the horn sounds periodically, players run across the field in organized chaos to the next station. There was plenty of excited chatter as each player made his way through the drills.

Once again, senior LB Mark Herzlich did not practice but was on the sidelines watching his teammates.

Spaziani and select players will attend Media Day tomorrow before their practice session later in the day. The week ends with the first double session and scrimmage on Saturday night.
