Spring Camp: Day 2

Stopped by Spring camp today...good turnout, maybe 60 or 70 kids and ten coaches. Caught up with a few former Viking stars: Bo Dickinson (headed to the University of British Columbia to play on football), J.J. McCarthy (headed to WSU, just completed a sucessful baseball season) and Eric Huswick (training for the Junior Olympics, will qualify Friday and Saturday for the Decathlon).
It's hard to tell much from Spring Camp. A few notes though before we get into the pictures. Coach Tom Tri singled out ten players and awarded the first helmet logos of the 2009 season for excellent offseason conditioning. I didn't catch all of the players, but I do remember WR/S Brandon Preslar, TE/DE Aaron Britton, LB Chase Crowley and LB Alex Moon were definitely among the ten. Sorry I couldn't get all the names...I was a long ways away. Congrats to these hardworking Vikes.
A couple other impressions...C Kalena Richardson looks imposing...his brother QB Sage Richardson has filled out some and was throwing with zip...newcomer Kyle Posey looks physically imposing...CB/WR Tyler Reside looks fast as hell...OL Jordan Eckstrom appears to have added muscle... Moon was moving fast and impressing in drills...QB Chameron Lackey and Crowley served as captains.
