TOREROS REPORT TO CAMP AUGUST 12TH: The USD Torero football team, under the direction of second-year head coach Dale Lindsey, will report to camp on Tuesday, August 12th. Coach Lindsey and his staff are expecting 110 student-athletes to report with the first practice slated for Wednesday, August 13th, from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Manchester Field (see complete camp schedule below). Practices are open to the media and interviews are available post-practice. Contact the USD media relations office in advance to coordinate interviews.
TORERO TIDBITS: For the third straight year the Toreros were picked to finish first in the PFL Preseason Coaches Poll. USD received five of a possible 10 first-place votes and 90 of a maximum 100 points. The Toreros were followed by Dayton (82 points), Jacksonville (80), Butler (77), Drake (73), Marist (61), Campbell (38), Morehead State (35), Stetson (30), Davidson (20) and Valparaiso (19). The PFL will feature 11 teams each playing an eight-game schedule to determine the league champion and recipient of the automatic bid to the 2014 NCAA FCS Championship. Four Toreros were named to the All-PFL Preseason squad - WR Reggie Bell, OL Pono Keni, OL Daniel Murray and Safety Troy McClelland. The Toreros return just 12 starters (players with 7 or more starts) from last year's 8-3 team - six on offense, four on defense and two special teams players, and approximately 30 returners (not including 2013 redshirts).
2014 SCHEDULE: The Toreros will kickoff the 2014 season on Saturday, Sept. 6th with a 6:00 p.m. nonconference home game against Western New Mexico. Additional home dates include Princeton (Sept. 20th, 1pm), Stetson (Oc.t 11th, 2pm), Dayton (Oct. 25th, 6pm), Morehead State (Nov. 8th, 1pm), Valparaiso (Nov. 15th, 1pm), and Cal Poly (Nov. 22nd, 4pm).
