TIGERS OPEN CAMP FOR 2006 CAMPAIGN Nashville, Tennessee - Tennessee State University head football coach James Webster welcomed ninety (90) players to campus Saturday to prepare for the 2006 "Restoring the ROAR" football campaign. Saturday's opening sessions revolved around check-in and physicals for new players. Webster and his staff challenged any returning players who had not shown proper worked ethic in off-season drills. He promised those who do not put in the work would not be starting on this year's team. "We have a lot of new faces on this team," said Webster, "And those who put in the work will be ON the field." He continued, "I have no intentions of having a repeat of last year's (2-9) season." The Tigers are scheduled to participate in twenty-four (24) practice sessions in the preseason. Picture day is scheduled for Friday, August 11th at 2:30p in Hale Stadium on campus. Camp Notes will be issued every third (3rd) day of camp.
