Brown Football Ready To Open Pre-Season Camp

Providence, RI – Amidst optimism for Brown's 133rd season of intercollegiate football and the first ever night game played at venerable Brown Stadium, the Brown football team will report to pre-season camp on Friday, August 19, seeking its third Ivy League title in the last six years. Bears' head coach Phil Estes will welcome 110 players to camp, including four All-Ivy players and 12 starters from last year's squad.

 

Estes' squad, chosen third in the Ivy League preseason poll for the fourth time in the last six years, will give its fans a preview of the 2010 season with a scrimmage against Columbia on Saturday, September 4th at Brown Stadium.

 

Brown kicks-off the 2010 season at home against Stony Brook, hosting the Seawolves at Brown Stadium on Saturday, September 18 at 12:30 p.m.

 

The Bears launch their Ivy League schedule against Harvard on Saturday, September 25, in the first night game played at Brown Stadium, with kick-off on the East Side slated for 6:00 p.m. Advanced sales for the game are already at a modern day record level.
