After having productive spring and summer programs, the Florida A&M football training camp will be about working on how to compete in a complete manor, according to first-year head coach Alex Wood.
With about a month of practices between now and the season kickoff against the University of South Florida on Sept. 5, one of the main focuses will be making sure players know how to finish games, Wood said.
“We obviously want to play physical and play hard, but we also want to make sure we know how to play a complete contest from play one to play last,” Wood said. “That’s what we are really working on and also making sure we are fundamentally sound.”
The fall camp will also be the time when Wood and his staff will be able to implement their systems on offense, defense and special teams.
“It’s our ability to create a rarefied atmosphere that’s really about training, comparing and building chemistry up for the football season,” Wood said.
First day of full contact drills will be on Monday August 10, with two work sessions.
