LUBBOCK, Texas - The first week of training camp is officially complete as Texas Tech ended the week with a two-hour scrimmage inside Jones AT&T Stadium on Saturday morning.

Following the conclusion of the scrimmage, both coordinators (James Willis and Neal Brown) told the media that they feel both units are on a good pace thus far but still have plenty of work to do before the season opener against SMU.

Quarterbacks Taylor Potts and Steven Sheffield took the majority of the reps during today's scrimmage but Jacob Karam, Seth Doege and Scotty Young also saw playing time. No time table has been established on the selection of a starting quarterback.

Texas Tech's next scheduled scrimmage is slated for the same time next Saturday morning.

RED RAIDERS MEET THE FANS |video camera Video
Thousands of fans showed up to the United Spirit Arena this afternoon for the annual fan day festivities. This marked the first time that the event had been held on the concourse of the arena and was designed to give the team and fans a break from the heat. Coach Tuberville and the players spent two hours signing autographs and posing for pictures.

After the fan day festivities were completed, the entire football team posed for pictures that will be used for television networks that broadcast games (ESPN, ABC, CBS, FSN etc.). These head shots are often used at the start of the game when the commentators announce the starting lineups. The Texas Tech Sports Broadcasting team also filmed head shots for the video board inside Jones AT&T Stadium.

Tomorrow will be the first official off day for the team meaning there will be no practice. The day will consist of position meetings and other film sessions for both the coaches and players. The next scheduled practice is set for 9:30 a.m. on Monday morning in what will be the second two-a-day of training camp.
