Oregon St. Sets Pre-Season Practice Schedule

New, 1 comment

Pre-season football practice (calling it "fall" camp doesn't make sense, given that it will be long over long before fall arrives) at Oregon St. starts a week from Monday, on Aug. 5, and the Beavers are going to continue the mid-day schedule that coach Mike Riley implemented last year, with notable success.

Oregon St. will work 6 days a week for 3 weeks, with daily practices beginning at 11 AM. 6 additional evening sessions will round out the 24 practices allowed prior to the week of the first game. The doubles won't be daily (another concept from yesteryear), occurring on an every other day basis beginning on Saturday, Aug. 10, except for a 2 day break around a Sunday, and all will start at 6:30 PM.

NCAA-mandated "acclimatization period" rules apply to the first 5 practices, and the Beavers will be in shorts and helmets only the first 3 days, and can only add shoulder pads ("shells") for the next 2, so the first full-pad practice will be Saturday, Aug. 10.

Come game week, before the season opener Saturday, Aug. 31 against Eastern Washington, Oregon St. will adjust the schedule, but only slightly, with daily practices beginning at 11:30 AM on Mondays thru Thursdays.

As all practices are again open to the public, the mid-day practices have become particularly popular as a lunch time activity.

Here's the complete schedule:

Aug. 5: Practice #1, 11 AM (shorts)

Aug. 6: Practice #2, 11 AM (shorts)
