#KUFallCamp Day 10: Competition
LAWRENCE, Kan. – For the first time in fall camp, Kansas football headed to the turf of Kivisto Field inside Memorial Stadium for its morning practice.
The training period began with some kicking competition that aimed to prepare the place kickers for a game day feel, with the rest of the squad making a very narrow tunnel for the kickers by lining up on either side of play. The entire team and coaching staff did all they could to distract the special teamers.
Third-year head coach David Beaty made things more interesting half way through the drill, putting more pressure on the kickers by dedicating a group of players to each kicker with the result of the kick determining which team does push-ups.

The competition set the tone for the remainder of practice with players working hard in the Kansas humidity, and after practice the team was rewarded with an icy treat – a shaved ice truck was waiting for the players near Memorial Stadium’s south end zone.
Following the long day of practice and meetings, which included a spirited talk with Jayhawk great Steve Towle, the players were given the option to take in the Sporting KC vs. San Jose Quakes game at Children’s Mercy Park on Wednesday evening.
Kansas will begin the 2017 season on Saturday, Sept. 2 with a home game against Southeast Missouri State. The Jayhawks will also host nonconference opponent Central Michigan (Sept. 9/Family Weekend, Band Day).
