Empire ready for training camp

Football -- pads, practice, film sessions, etc. -- is back on the agenda for the Spokane Empire after a busy offseason.

They open two weeks of training camp Friday at the Spokane Soccer Center. Practices are open to the media under coach Adam Shackleford, who had that policy in his first go-around with the organization from 2007-09.

I previewed training camp in an article that will run in Friday's S-R while also taking a look at the Empire's challenges on and off the field.
