Day 3 – Can We Scrimmage Already?

Thursday, October 1, 2009
By Micah Hart

There is a good reason why fans aren’t allowed to come to training camp, and it has nothing to do with being a distraction to the players or perhaps giving away the team’s secrets. It’s because training camp is boring. Yeah that’s right, I said it.

I want to see some scrimmages! I want to see some action! At least, that’s what I’d be saying if I were a fan.

But the truth is, you have to crawl before you walk. The Hawks are spending the bulk of their time doing drills and working on fundamentals because to be successful in this league, you have to be able to execute, and you have to be able to do it without thinking. Repetition is key, and this is the time to get offensive sets, defensive assignments, etc. down cold.

So though I wish I had more to give you after watching the guys go at it today, I understand why I don’t.

The good news? Tomorrow there will be some live action I’m told, so I’ll hopefully have much more to report.

Here are some pics from the day’s activities.
