IF IT’S REALLY TRUE THAT THE EARLY BIRD GETS THE WORM, THE SHSU BEARKAT FOOTBALL TEAM SHOULD BE IN GOOD SHAPE FOR THE UPCOMING SEASON. THE KATS BEGAN THEIR 2014 PRE-SEASON CAMP MONDAY AT BOWERS STADIUM, BECOMING THE 1ST COLLEGE TEAM IN THE NATION TO HIT THE FIELD FOR EARLY WORKOUTS. THE KATS TRAVEL TO FACE EASTERN WASHINGTON AUG. 23. THE GAME – WHICH IS BEING BILLED AS THE F-C-S KICKOFF – AND WILL BE TELECAST NATIONALLY ON ESPN – IS THE 1ST COLLEGE CONTEST OF THE YEAR, AND WILL BE THE ONLY COLLEGE GAME PLAYED THAT DAY. THUS, BOTH SHSU & EASTERN WASHINGTON GET TO OPEN PRE-SEASON CAMP AHEAD OF ALL OTHER TEAMS. EASTERN WASHINGTON WILL BEGIN ITS PRACTICE SESSIONS ON WEDNESDAY.
