Nashville, Tenn. – Monday Aug.5 will mark the first day of fall camp for the Tennessee State football team. All practices are scheduled to be held at Hale Stadium and are open to the public.

The first week of practices will run from 6-8 a.m. and the squad will start in just helmets but progress to full pads by the following week on Aug. 12.

Fall camp will kick off the Tigers’ 2013 campaign, a year removed from their most successful season since 2001 (8-3). Despite the team’s success from a year ago, this year’s club feels it still has a lot to prove to get into the National Playoff picture.

TSU was recently pegged to finish third in the Ohio Valley Conference and seven Tigers were named to the league’s All-Preseason Team. Included on that list was cornerback Stephen Godbolt III who was also named the conference’s Preseason Defensive Player of the Year.

Fall camp will mark the first time that the entire team will be together since spring practices and will serve as the first opportunity for Big Blue’s No. 1 Ranked HBCU recruiting class to back up its distinction.

TSUTigers.com will be providing updates from camp up until the Tigers’ first contest on Sept. 1 in the John Merritt Classic against Bethune-Cookman.
