BERKELEY - The Cal football team opened its 2010 training camp on Saturday with a crisp hour and a half workout at Memorial Stadium.
"You could tell that the guys really had a great summer," head coach Jeff Tedford told the assembled media after the workout. "There was great energy. The guys were looking forward to it and they came out ready."
The helmets only practice included stretching, a series of individual drills, seven-on-seven work and a full team session that wrapped up practice and was highlighted by Tyre Ellison's interception return for a touchdown.
All training camp practices are closed to the general public other than the team's annual Fan Appreciation Day following the final training camp workout on Saturday, Aug. 28. The public event will take place that day at Memorial Stadium from 11:15 a.m. - 1:15 p.m.
Cal opens its 2010 season vs. UC Davis on Saturday, Sept. 4. The upcoming campaign also includes visits from Arizona State, Colorado, Oregon, Stanford, UCLA and Washington during a seven-game home schedule.
As Cal football prepares for its final season in the current Memorial Stadium, it is important to purchase season tickets this year. Cal fans that purchase season tickets and maintain their donation levels will have access to the best possible season-ticket seat locations when Cal football plays at AT&T Park in 2011 and returns to the renovated Memorial Stadium in 2012.
