Canes Kickoff Fall Camp


Posted Aug 3, 2013


The University of Miami opened fall camp today with their first practice. Here are some news and notes.

The players reported at the end of the week and went through a conditioning test yesterday. According to Al Golden, every player passed it -- a big difference than when he first got the job.

“We didn't have anyone not pass the test for the first time since I've been here. We went from having half the team not pass in my first year to everyone passing. Obviously the culture is changing about conditioning and the attitude is different. They demolished the test. They literally just absolutely crushed it. It's a good feeling and I know they feel good about it.”

Later in the day, quarterback Stephen Morris and defensive end Shayon Green were named team captains.

“My biggest thing is to influence everybody," Morris said. "Leadership doesn't mean anything unless people are following you. My biggest thing is to keep leading and keeping these guys focused for what's ahead.”

Running back Eduardo Clements and wide receiver Malcolm Lewis have been medically cleared and participated in practice today. Sophomore safety Deon Bush was limited, after sports hernia surgery. He's expected to be cleared next week.
