“I have been really impressed with the overall play of the squad as a whole. A lot of guys are competing. In years past we have only had two or three guys battling for roster spots. Everyone is competing really hard this year, we are having lots of position battles going on.”On today’s golf outing at Double Eagle…
“We are all looking forward to the outing. It is a lot of fun. It is a great event that is organized very well. I am really looking forward to playing that course today. We are four days into camp and it is nice to get out and have a little fun.”NOTES FROM TRAINING CAMP
