The Louisville football team officially opened preseason camp on Friday with a fast-paced practice session outside the Howard Schnellenberger Football Complex. In front of an estimated crowd of more than 1,400 fans, the Cardinals worked 24 periods in helmets and shorts. Sophomore quarterback Teddy Bridgewater exhibited good command of the Cardinals’ first team offense while working with an array of talented rushers and receivers. Despite no full contact tackling in Friday’s practice, the Louisville defense showed good speed and athleticism in pursuing the football.
Following the open practice, third year head coach Charlie Strong, Bridgewater and junior linebacker Preston Brown met with a large group of reporters to recap the day’s activities. Complete video of Strong’s media session is available below. The Cardinals will conduct a second and final open practice on Saturday at 11:30 a.m., ET.
