Thomas Reed provides our first report on 2000 practice

July 31, 2000

The Red Devils began football camp today. It was the first day in full pads for the Devils. They held a scrimmage under the lights tonight. ... They certainly looked in shape. Several of the Devils have lost a lot of weight. Within a few weeks they should all be ready for the season. Allory Norman is returning from his knee injury; he should add a real boost to the offense. Backup quarterback looks to be a big question. It was good to see [Coach] Glenn Matthews back at practice; he will be a positive addition this season.
