PVAMU football reaches midpoint of training camp

From PVAMU Athletics Communications 

PRAIRIE VIEW, TEXAS (August 8, 2018) Like sands in the hour glass, time continues to move forward as the Prairie View A&M University football team has reached the midpoint of 2018 Training Camp.

Coverage of Panthers Training Camp on is sponsored by Texas Farm Bureau Insurance. Texas Farm Bureau Members can receive free tickets to Panther home athletics contests by showing proof of membership at the PVAMU Ticket Office. Panther Nation can visit the local Texas Farm Bureau Agent in Waller to become a member today.

Having reported to camp approximately two weeks ago, and with the August 25 season opener at Rice approximately 2 1/2 weeks away, first-year head coach Eric Dooley likes the way his roster is shaping up. 

“We have a lot of guys who want to work and are will to fight through adversity,”  “They understand that’s it hot. They understand that everyone is sore, as we’ve had a lot of practices, but they are laying it on the line and showing a lot of effort. I’m pleased with those guys who are really pushing through and sacrificing.”

Gameday is steadily approaching. Positions on the roster and depth chart battles continue daily. As camp pushes on, Dooley continues to look and establish a roster which will compete for 60 minutes in every play of every game.

Dooley added, 

“I like this point of camp. This lets me know who I can go to war with right now in a good way, who I can go into battle with on gameday, who’s now going to turn away from the challenge, and who’s going to be ready to play.  I like the fact I can see guys fighting through it. I know it’s tough on them, but I know no other way but to be tough on them.”

The Panthers will practice Thursday at 9 a.m.
