Red Raiders finish fall camp

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

It's officially Game Week for Texas Tech as the Red Raiders waved goodbye to a rigorous 23-day fall camp.

Practices have been described as "grueling" as Coach Kingsbury implements his fast-paced offensive attack, aimed at being the fastest in college football. In order to be successful with the pace Kingsbury wants, conditioning is particularly important. The team has practiced at a frenetic pace during practice so that games feel slower and easier to execute.

The end of fall camp has brought a sigh of relief from the players.

"It's been really tough," Junior tight end Jace Amaro said. "Even tougher than last year. We're going so fast that guys are almost exhausted to the point where you just have to push through. But it's getting us ready for game situations, just preparing us to play as fast as we can and playing faster than anybody expected us to."

Now the team gets into its regular season routine as Week 1 of the regular season begins next Friday. Fall camp was tough, but it served its purpose.

"It's good to see it all come together," Senior defensive end Kerry Hyder said. "We're finally getting a good groove together and everything is coming together right before the first game."
