CONWAY, S.C. (WMBF) - It’s been a crazy week all across college football, but the Sun Belt Conference is still going strong and Coastal Carolina football has wrapped up its first full week of fall camp.
The Chants hit the turf Friday morning with some of the best mullets in college football on display and head coach Jamey Chadwell even showing off the guns. There was plenty of competition on both sides of the ball as the team tries to maintain some normalcy while watching so much unfold in the world around them.
Junior defensive end Jeffrey Gunter says the team is fully committed to playing games in the fall and the guys are doing everything they can to ensure that happens.
”100%. We’re taking the correct precautions, keeping social distancing, and limiting how much we go out and be around other people,” said CCU junior defensive end Jeffrey Gunter. “We’re 100% committed to the season and we want to do everything we can to not only start but finish the season. It’s more so collective. I think everybody has a strong understanding that if we have one slip up it could possibly ruin the whole season. Everybody is really taking it serious and being as disciplined as they can.”
Of course, huge news came down Thursday as the NCAA canceled all fall Division I Championships. That move however won’t affect football at the FBS level as the NCAA doesn’t govern FBS bowls and the College Football Playoff.
Late Friday night, CCU announced it will play at Kansas on Sept. 12. The university said it also agreed to host the Jayhawks in 2021. The Chants’ schedule also includes a full slate of Sun Belt Conference games, with dates for those yet to be announced.
