FORT COLLINS, Colo. – The Colorado State football program wrapped up its third Fall Camp under Head Coach Jim McElwain on Thursday afternoon, and starting tomorrow the focus will turn to the season opener against Colorado.
In the final practice of Fall Camp the Rams had an efficient practice and were able to finish early.
“We ended early today and it wasn’t because anything more than they completed the work in a fast tempo, and I was really kind of happy about it,” McElwain said.
McElwain was pleased with how the team attacked camp, and everything that they accomplished over the 22 practices.
“Part of that is just knowing how to work,” McElwain said. “These guys have proven they understand that. I see their conditioning level is something we haven’t had to worry about, because of the pace at which they practice and the tempo at which they practice. It is nice when you don’t have to waste time conditioning.”
The Rams will return to the practice fields south of Moby Arena on Friday afternoon and start to work against their scout team, which will line up in formations and run plays the team will see in the Rocky Mountain Showdown.
