Empty pit

July 25th, 2014

During football practices, the area where injured players work out is called the "pit."

The goal for the coming training camp is to have an empty pit.

This summer, only players who are healthy enough to practice will be invited to the Aug. 4 opening of training camp. Players recovering from significant injuries will be added after they receive medical clearance. The next week will determine whether such players as Samson Anguay, Jamie Tago and Kawika Borden will be ready for camp.

The Warriors will be under the training-camp limit of 105 players as they await results of players seeking to transfer. There are at least five transfer players still awaiting admission into UH.
