UTICA, N.Y. (WUTR/WFXV/WPNY) – The Utica University Pioneers football team began their 2022 preseason camp on Wednesday, but that was mostly moving into dorms and filling out paperwork, the real work began on Thursday.

The day began early for players, a 7 am wake-up right into weight and conditioning testing at 8, then a helmet-only practice from 1:30 to 3:30 and it’ll conclude later tonight with a team meeting around 9 o’clock. In between those last two, though is a walk-through, the team just going over the basic offensive and defensive strategies and play calls, teaching the rookie while giving the veterans a little bit of a refresher.
