UTEP Football Fall Camp 2014: Key Dates

Taking a look at some key dates, and some early things to look at as camp nears closer.


Camp start in 21 days!  Yes it's almost here, and today we look at some key dates and what camp will look this August.

UTEP is still slated for its two week adventure in Alpine; let's hope this year no one has to walk back to the dorms from practice :)

Obviously the most important date is the start of camp August 4th, but the August 9th scrimmage holds huge importance in the early stages of camp.  It marks the first scrimmage of camp, and the first depth chart evaluation for open spots after the first full week of activities.

With so many open spots along both defensive and offensive fronts, the three total scrimmages will be huge for players looking to fill those once games start, and also for the coaches to figure out rotations on both sides of the ball.

Unlike last year, UTEP has its defense and offensive schemes installed, so there will plenty of more room for sharpening up on things, instead of implementing and changing things.

This is key for the defense that will get a lot of time perfecting tackling, and assignments, two big factors that plagued the Miners early in the season last year.   For the offense, I would utilize this fall for creating more creativity with the weapons UTEP has its disposal this season since there were some personnel changes in the offseason.

Of course a big theme for teams that camp out of town is the chemistry and bonding the team will gain, and with some new leaders emerging, camp is another chance for the Jameill Showers's, Roy Robertson's, and Devin Cockrell's to continue on the path of becoming impact players.

It's almost time for football again, what a wonderful feeling.
