The 2016 Atlanta Falcons Xfinity Training Camp is officially underway.
As the fans lined up outside of Flowery Branch this morning, Head Coach Dan Quinn was busy finalizing his plans for camp. But he took time out to come outside, sit down and talk football with our own John Fricke and Hugh Douglas.
Quinn says he slept very little last night, “Just wanted to go ahead and get at it.”
He also recommended that the fans pay close attention to the ball this year at camp. Quinn says, “We want to see the ball on the ground as little as possible.”
Coach Quinn said, “Weems and Hardy might be playing dual roles and fill the spots on the return team. With Hester being let go, that opened up two spots.”
Watch the interview above.
As excited as Quinn was to get going, the fans were equally excited to get inside and see what the 2016 Falcons look like. There were fans that had never been here before, like the Washington’s from Covington, GA. The kids start school shortly, so the family decided to make the trip up to Flowery Branch, GA for one day of camp and one day together.
A great couple below was celebrating their 11th wedding anniversary today, wearing #11 jerseys and taking in the first day of camp.
Camp is open again Friday, Saturday and Sunday this week. It will be closed Monday, Aug 1st.
Come out, bring the kids, and take in some great football practice and stop by and say hi. We are located right next to the entrance to the field.
See you at camp!
