The Tulane University football team had a productive two-hour workout in full pads on a sunny Thursday afternoon at the Westfeldt Facility. The Green Wave opened with special teams drills and then used the majority of the session to focus on a mix of passing and running drills.

"It was a good practice," head coach Chris Scelfo said. "They're getting their legs back underneath them. The concentration-level was good and
we were sound assignment-wise."
Scelfo, who has expressed concern with his team's fitness during camp, did say that he has been pleased with the team's progress. Thursday marked
the 16th day of camp and the team is slated to close preseason with two Friday practices.
"Camp has put us into better shape," Scelfo said. "We got a look at guys who have to help us this season and we have also improved both
fundamentally and technically, which is what you want from preseason. Injuries and a lack of mental toughness took away from camp early, but
we've come together."
Following Friday's practices, the Green Wave will began regular-game preparation for its season-opener on Labor Day, Sept. 1 at the
Louisiana Superdome at 7 p.m. against Conference USA foe TCU. Tickets for the game, which will be televised nationally by ESPN, as well as season
tickets, are available by calling the Tulane Athletics Ticket Office at (504) 861-WAVE.
