Newcomers Report For Football
Aug. 7, 2000
LOGAN, Utah - New Utah State head football coach Mick Dennehy welcomed 31 freshmen, junior college transfers and walkons to campus as all football newcomers reported to Logan on Monday. Among the group were 17 walkons.
"If they play as well as they eat, then we will win some games," Dennehy said after viewing his new players after dinner. "It is a good-looking group of kids. I think there are some players there."
The players will spend Tuesday going through academic orientation and weight testing, before hitting the field for two-a-day workouts on Wednesday and Thursday. Practice sessions will start at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. on those two days.
USU's varsity players will report on Thursday and be a part of media day on Friday. Two-a-days for the entire squad will take place on Saturday at 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
The Aggies will open the season at Texas Tech on Sept. 2 and will host Southern Utah in the home opener on Sept. 9.
