SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Rookie Syracuse 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 to the military post during the week of Aug. 12 to continue a bond it shares with the military personnel at the Army base.
With help from the famed 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 Aug. 15 in front of the soldiers and their families.
