Monmouth football starts training camp looking to find answers and embrace change

Monmouth football starts training camp looking to find answers and embrace change

WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. -- Some people like the grind of training camp. Some don’t. But it’s a ritual everyone must go through, especially if they want a championship trophy in their hands come winter time.

For fifth year senior wide receiver Thaddeus Richards, the fact that the Monmouth University offense has a new system to run in 2014 signaled to him early on the importance of these early August practices.

“At the beginning of the spring we struggled to pick it up a bit,” Richards said recently at practice. “But I think we’ve taken a huge jump from the beginning of spring to where we’re at now. We were installing plays pretty quickly and now we’re kind of hitting our stride. But as far as picking up the offense, now we’re not as worried as much [about] learning the offense as much as getting it down so it’s more systematic like our old offense.”

And so it goes, even for veterans. This training camp, which opened up on August 5, will be vital under and upperclassmen alike, as everyone is eager to start the Hawks first season in the Big South Conference on a good note.
