WEST HARRISON, Ind. – The University of Cincinnati football team moved into its next phase of preseason camp Tuesday, holding its first two-a-day session at the Higher Ground Conference & Retreat Center in West Harrison, Ind.
UC worked out for 90 minutes in shells under sunny skies early this morning. The Bearcats focused on installing the two-minute drill and red-zone packages with some heavy focus on special teams periods.
In the evening, Head Coach Butch Jones welcomed over 150 members of the 1200 Club to Higher Ground. After having dinner with the team, Coach Jones introduced Director of Athletics Whit Babcock who spoke to the crowd. Coach Jones gave the group an update on camp and then took questions from the audience. Participants moved on to position group meetings and then were on the field to watch UC’s full pads workout under the lights.
For those who have not yet taken advantage of joining the 1200 Club, Coach Jones spoke of his desire to grow the club to over 500 members in the near future. Contact Keith Pantling at 513-556-5986 to join.
UC is back on the practice field Wednesday for a single practice in the afternoon.
