As editor of this fine establishment, one of the best days for me to cover is when the many members of the Pittsburgh Steelers report to training camp. There is just so much hope and intrigue surrounding a brand-spanking-new football season, it is tough to compare to anything else throughout the NFL season.
With that said, every year I try to improve the training camp coverage to help the vast BTSC and Steelers’ fan base enjoy the kickoff of a new football season with high hopes and championship dreams.
When I started writing for BTSC Neal Coolong concocted “The Renegade”, a full 24-hour deluge of awesome content on the eve of training camp. It was awesome, but I felt the content could be spread out more. After all, once the players report all they do is the run test. The real news starts on the first day of practice, July 28th this year.
This is where the “Training Camp Confidential” was born. A 3-day feast of features and articles for the black and gold fanatic to digest. All of the articles will remain in the stream of the main page of the website, while other news will certainly have it’s place on the page as well.
This year will be the third year for the Training Camp Confidential, and we, as always, are primed to make it better than ever!
