PINE BLUFF, Ark. (UAPB) -- Two of the key factors the Golden Lion coaching staff wants to focus on are retention and application of the playbook.
With veterans stepping up and showing leadership to the incoming freshmen, the learning curve that is usually an issue with the start of fall camp has been reduced to the liking of head coach Monte Coleman.
Even with the normal conditions that could plague preseason camp (heat, injuries), for the first day in shoulder pads, the coaching staff is pleased with the conditioning of the overall team.
The Golden Lions have one more day of practice with just helmets and shoulder pads before going to full pads for the remainder of camp.
