Exactly four weeks before opening the season against St. Paul's on August 31, the Liberty University football program will open its preseason training camp on Thursday with its first practice of the 2006 season.

All returning players and newcomers reported back to campus today for preseason camp check-in, which included evening meetings with the coaching staff and members of the athletic department administration.

The first preseason camp under first-year head coach Danny Rocco kicks off on Thursday with a 2:15 p.m. practice on the practice field behind the Hancock Athletic Center.

All preseason practices will continue to run on the Hancock Athletic Center practice field until the FieldTurf installation is completed at Williams Stadium.

The FieldTurf installation is scheduled to resume early next week and should be completed in less than a week after the start of the installation. Once the FieldTurf installation is complete, all practice sessions, both during preseason camp and during the regular season, will be held at Williams Stadium.
