MARTIN, Tenn. – Along with the summer heat of August comes the opening of camp for collegiate football programs all around the country with the University of Tennessee at Martin being no different.

The Skyhawks are set to report to campus on Thursday, Aug. 4 and will hold 24 practices leading up to game week preparations for their season-opener at Cincinnati on Thursday, Sept. 1.

The squad will officially open camp on Friday, Aug. 5 and will go through a trio of two-a-day practices (Aug. 10, Aug. 15 and Aug. 20) before concluding on Saturday, Aug. 27. The team will conduct four intrasquad scrimmages (Aug. 13, Aug. 17, Aug. 20 and Aug. 27). All practices are open to the public.

UT Martin returns 64 players and nine starters from last season’s squad which went 7-4 overall with a 6-2 Ohio Valley Conference record, finishing third in the league standings. Head coach Jason Simpson – the OVC’s longest tenured coach – enters his 11th season at the helm of the Skyhawk program, achieving the ninth most wins in league history.
