Syracuse Orange Return To Drum


Rookie Syracuse football coach Scott Shafer is bringing the team back to Fort Drum for preseason training camp for the second straight year.

The Orange will travel north during the week of August 12 to continue a bond it shares with the military personnel at the Army post.
With help from the 10th Mountain Division, the Orange will incorporate elements of military training into the daily preseason camp.
The team will practice on Sligh Field, hold meetings in a battalion headquarters, eat in a mess hall, and sleep in barracks.
Players and coaches also will participate in various military activities, including Army physical training and small unit leadership seminars.
The week will culminate with a scrimmage August 15 in front of the soldiers and their families.
