Fall football camp is a time to see how your football team will react to new things, new challenges and sometimes adversity.
The daily grind of things is one of the first things a team has to handle.
Arkansas State new Head Coach Hugh Freeze likes mixing things up a little especially when it comes to the practice schedule.
Today marks the first two a day practice for the Red Wolves, Freeze moved up the practice so his team would get a taste of getting up ready for an early morning or noon ballgame.
"We got up at 5:30 this morning," Freeze said. "It was a good teaching session this morning after a lot of classroom times last night."
The team took the field at 7:25 a.m. and was off the field shortly after 9 a.m.
"We welcome the challenge of two a days," Freeze said. "Their spirits were great when we got up early this morning. We expect the same spirit and attitude this afternoon."
Freeze has changed up today's schedule, more meetings this morning and afternoon before the team retakes the practice field at 4:30 p.m.
