Eags to open football practice on Friday

Eastern Washington University will open its fall football camp on Friday in preparation for its Sept. 5 season and home opener against Western Oregon.  You can get more detail here.

I will attend Friday afternoon’s first practice, which starts at 2:15 and post a story as soon as possible.

For more links to stories about the Eagles’ upcoming season read on, and those looking for a blast from Eastern’s pass might check out this story on former EWU defensive lineman Dario Romero that ran in Tuesday morning’s S-R.


Catching up on some football related items concerning the 2009-10 season:

You can check here for a story on Eagles senior quarterback Matt Nichols having once again been named as one of the 20 players selected as preseason candidates for the Walter Payton Award.

You can read about Eastern being picked — in a preseason poll of league coaches — to finish third in this year’s Big Sky Conference race here.

And you can read a preseason preview of the Eagles offense, supplied by the school’s sports information department, here.

Leave your opinions on how you think the Eagles, who are in the process of appealing the post-season ban handed  down by the NCAA, will fare this year.

That’s it for now. I’m getting ready to head out to Avista Stadium to cover the Spokane Indians.  But check back for more news of Eastern football.
