Mizzou Football First Fall Practice

One step closer to the start of the 2014 season, the Mizzou Football team had its first fall camp practice on Monday, August 4 at The ZOU.

“We got a lot of fundamental work done,” Head Coach Gary Pinkel said after practice. “We have to watch the competitive drills that we have because we don’t have proper pads on. But other than that I thought we did good work.”

The Mizzou Football Family welcomed four captains at Mondays practice: safety Braylon Webb, defensive end Markus Golden, wide receiver Bud Sasser and left tackle Mitch Morse. All four are returning seniors who were elected by their teammates.

“We have a lot of returning experience,” Pinkel said. “I think we have eight or nine starters back, and we have a lot of guys that played a lot last year. So we have a much more experienced team than I think it would appear.”

The Mizzou Tigers will play their first 2014 season game on August 30 in the home opener against South Dakota State. Kickoff is at 2:30 p.m. CT.
