Lancers Prepare For Season Opener

The University of Windsor opens training camp for the football players today, however they'll hit the turf at Alumni Field for the first time tomorrow morning.

The past couple of seasons, the Lancers have gone two and six, however head coach Joe D'Amore is looking for improvements this year.

The Lancers first regular season game is just two weeks from Sunday, when they host Waterloo, then it's off to Toronto to face the Varsity Blues.

One of the other big games will be when the always powerful Western Mustangs come to town on Saturday September 16th.

D'Amore tells AM800 Sports sophomore Sam Girard from Amherstburg "saw a little time last year against Waterloo and at the end of the season against Laurier.  He's a real smart kid with a high I.Q. and an impressive G.P.A. in human kinetics."
