A steady rain fell from the sky Thursday morning - including moments of heavy downpours at Dix Stadium - during Day Seven of Kent State’s preseason football camp.
Head coach Darrell Hazell admitted he thought of moving practice indoors initially, but declined to do so after further thought.
“Because of the weather, I contemplated going in (to the Fieldehouse) and walking through, but not a t full pace,” Hazell said. “But I’m glad we stayed out and had a chance to handle the ball in the wetness and see how we’d do.”
Although Hazell, and everyone else for that matter, was soaked to the bone by the end of the morning session, the second-year coach thought the exercise in dealing with the elements went well.
“It didn’t seem to bother anyone,” he said. “These guys just kept working their tails off.”
A week into camp, Hazell said he’s most impressed by close of a group the team is as a whole.
“They support each other and they’re driven,” he said.
