Tonight's Practice Video, looking towards last day of camp
Tomorrow, McMurry closes camp with two-a-days. The team will practice at Dyess Air Force Base in an effort to build a further relationship with the local military unit. McMurry began a program a few weeks ago called Operation Maroon Pride where fans can purchase season tickets for active military personnel and their families so they can attend the games for free.
We'll try to bring you coverage tomorrow from that eventful practice. The team will also conduct a kids clinic for the kids that live on the Dyess campus.
Then, the team closes training camp with practice. For the defense, it means that defensive coordinator Joe Lee Dunn will require that his players make it through 15-minutes of up-downs, a tradition carried on by Dunn from Vince Lombardi's days in Green Bay.
We'll wrap up this mega-coverage tomorrow. I hope you fans have enjoyed it, and we'll try to use this blog to keep fans updated with the latest insider news on McMurry Athletics.
