Because the summer camps these past few weeks, the Jimokes have been able to rekindle their friendships with each other. With that, a lot of blog talk has been going on.
In light of Nike's new football campaign, with the phrase, "Leave Nothing," we have our new motto...
We feel it works so well. So, today we move away last year's "We Gotta Go..." and bring in "Leave Nothing."
The month of June is a busy one for the SC coaching staff, to say the least.
The string of Win Forever Summer camps for children, high school stars, and oldies all take place in June. This also means long days for the Jimokes.
Thursday will end the final day of the 2009 summer camps with the 2nd of two days of the Rising Stars camp.
The camps that have already taken place require sophisticated and strict time tables. Something us Jimokes need to be looking out for. The days consist of setting up a number of athletic fields on the USC campus, the Cromwell Track & Field and Baseball's Dedeaux Stadiums included. In addition to setting the fields up, a number of eqiupment changes are needed.
One cool thing the Jimokes get to do: Not only are we the student managers who deal with the equipment, but the summer camps allow us to test out our coaching styles and even referee games. It's a real joy to be even more involved in the USC Football program, and so rewarding to coach the youngsters.
While the days begin at 6:30am and don't end until 6:30pm, and the hot sun boils over you all day, the summer camps are another way for the Jimokes to be involved with USC Football. And it's great!
Well, it's summer in the USC world...and in the Jimoke Blog world.
Not much is going on around the USC program worth blogging about, but I thought I'd give you a check-up on us.
The USC Trojans, after a few weeks off after the semester ended, have been back on campus for the past few weeks. They are now well into their strict workout regiments, including 6am team-wide runs.
The summer workout program will go through July and right into August for the start of Fall Camp. Something we are all anxiously awaiting!
