With Colorado's Football fall camp only 24 days away, the Buffs have been working extremely hard to prepare for the upcoming season.
A new coaching staff, a new attitude and a new energy surrounds the CU program. This was evident as players came off the field after a voluntary workout Thursday afternoon.
BuffPlayBook.com caught up with several current players at Dal Ward Athletic complex after a grueling workout.
A big positive for the Buffs offense this fall will be the return of sophomore running back Christian Powell. The big athletic back had a great spring season and is preparing himself for a fall season that expects to see him as either the No. 1 or No. 2 back on the CU 2 deep depth chart.
"Christian had a great spring," CU Running Back coach Klayton Adams said in an earlier interview. "He is a big back that is plenty fast. He is very elusive for a big guy and catches the ball well out of the backfield."
According to Adams, Powell is a good player, but an even better person.
"He is such a great young man," Adams said. "He is definitely a special type of athlete and person. I expect Powell and Tony Jones to battle for the starting role, both showed a lot of talent in the spring."
Powell is also excited about this upcoming fall and what the new coaching staff brings to the table.
"Everyone adapted well to the new coaching staff," Powell said. "You can feel the difference in the team chemistry."
