🏈 Kansas Football Fall Camp Update No. 4

LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas Football is now in its third week of training camp as the Jayhawks continue to prepare for year two of the Lance Leipold era. The Jayhawks are now less than three weeks away from kickoff of the 2022 season opener, which takes place on Friday, September 2, against Tennessee Tech at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium.

Quotable #1

"It’s a night and day difference here in August than it was a year ago. Our talent level is up, our buy-in is better than it’s ever been before. Now we have got to be able to take that daily competition that we’ve talked about so dearly and make it better playing on gameday and that’s our goal this fall."

Keeping Cool

Quotable #2
β€œAs you saw as you went through last season, our young men kept believing and kept working hard. We played our best football down the stretch, especially down in Austin, Texas.” – Lance Leipold

β€œJason Bean has had some of his best practices, I’ll just say that. His best practices as a Jayhawk have been in this month of August. I’m proud of how he’s gone about it. He’s more confident. He’s not letting this topic affect how he goes about it.” – Lance Leipold
