UVa Cavaliers open fall football camp
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WSET) - The Virginia Cavaliers went to work EARLY Friday morning for the first day of fall camp football practices.
Players hit the field ready to roll at 6:50, they get to sleep in a little Saturday, 10:50 start, then bright and early Monday morning at 6:30.
Guard Jack McDonald is out two weeks after having his knee scoped. But the Cavs did add some depth to the offensive line with the addition of graduate transfers John Montelus from Notre Dame, best suited for a guard position and Brandon Pertile from Oklahoma State, likely a tackle.
Bronco Mendenhall, after a tough 2-and-10 first season, says the biggest lesson he learned is the Cavs need to practice playing more football.
Bronco Mendenhall, 2ND-YEAR VIRGINIA HEAD COACH, said "We'll play and we'll play and we'll play and then when we want to change it up, we'll play some more and on our off day. We probably won't have an off-day. We'll play and then to just change things up, we'll play some more, and if we really want to get after it, then we'll play some more."
