Southern head coach Dawson Odums said all 95 of his players reported to campus Wednesday. The Jaguars moved into their dorms in preparation of Thursday’s first practice of fall camp. It’s the first preseason training camp under the leadership of Odums who enters his year one as the head coach.

Odums spoke to the media Wednesday. He mentioned linebacker, wide receiver and running back as the positions he is intrigued to watch over the next few weeks. He said tempo is something he’ll be pushing starting with conditioning tests at 9 a.m. Thursday morning. The players will run 12 100-yard sprints with only a 22 second break between runs. As for practice, Odums hopes to get two plays in each minute. “The more reps allow young guys to grow and develop,” he said.

Below is the preseason practice schedule:
