The USF football team as well as their fans enter the season with high hopes.
Head coach Skip Holtz beamed when he addressed the media after the day's festivities, which included an open practice, autograph signings with the players and coaches as well as drills for young fans to take part in.
"It gives us a chance to put faces with those bodies that are in the stands," Holtz said Sunday afternoon.
Amid the excitement is a team filled with seniors that is anxious to live up to the expectations.
"They realize that we can't erase the feelings of last year in a day, in a summer, in a fall camp. The only way to erase that is to have 12 games under our belt and to make sure that this is a successful season and I think that's putting a chip on everybody's shoulder and putting an awful lot of determination in this senior class."
That determination will be tested early in the season when the Bulls travel to Reno to take on Nevada September 8th.
