VERO BEACH, Fla. – The USF football team had a crisp workout in shorts on Friday as they prepared for their first scrimmage of fall camp, which will be held on Saturday at 1 p.m. at the Vero Beach Sports Village. Fans are encouraged to come watch as the Bulls will scrimmage for about two hours.
Prior to the workout, the staff held the opening ceremony for the 2011 Bulls Olympics. The Olympics are made up of 10 events, which will take place over the course of the next two days. The Bulls plan to take part in six events on Saturday evening and will finish up on Sunday with the final four events. The team is broken up into 10 groups, while the coaching staff makes up the 11th team. Coach Holtz competes on his own as he tries to match the skills of the members of his program.
