SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The Toreros are back on the field for their final training camp before the 2017 season begins. Head Coach Dale Lindsey and Senior Safety Ray Clark discussed the upcoming season and new team dynamics on Tuesday afternoon.
NEW YEAR - NEW TEAM:
The team began their first week of training on Monday to prepare for their first game against Western New Mexico. After a historic season in 2016, the upperclassmen of the USD football team have committed to lead the new squad to another undefeated season.
"We lost a lot of guys last year, but we have some returners, and we're all trying to set an example to show the new guys how we do things around here," said Clark in an interview on Tuesday.
Coach Lindsey gave some insight on his strategy for the 2017 season. "We may, as coaches, have to simplify things so we can play fast," said Coach Lindsey. "I think we have a group of fast players. We just have to get them all up to speed, and get them all on the same page, and then we can have a pretty good team."
WHEN : The Toreros open their season on September 2nd at 2 p.m. in the Torero Stadium.
