Stanford Football Opens Fall Camp On Saturday
Aug. 14, 2002
STANFORD, Calif. - The Stanford University football team will begin two-a-day workouts this Saturday as it prepares for the 2002 season opener on September 7 at Boston College.
The season opener will also mark the Stanford coaching debut of Buddy Teevens, who has previously served as a head coach at Tulane University, Darthmouth College and the University of Maine, and was most recently the assistant offensive coordinator at the University of Florida.
All returning players report to the Stanford campus Thursday evening, and will take part in photo and media sessions on Friday, before taking to the field for the first time on Saturday morning.
The Cardinal will practice from 8:30-10:30 a.m. and 4:00-6:00 p.m. on Saturday, and will work out daily until Saturday, August 31. Stanford preseason practices are held on campus on the program's three-field facility, which is located next door to Maples Pavilion.
The returning players will join the 22 newcomers to the Stanford football program, who reported to campus on Monday. The newcomers will go through four practices, an academic orientation and a formal 'etiquette' dinner before being joined by the returners.
Stanford returns 36 lettermen and nine starters from a team that went 9-3 overall and 6-2 in the Pacific-10 Conference last season. The Cardinal finished tied for second in the Pac-10, and received a bid to the inaugural Seattle Bowl.
