BOURBONNAIS, Ill. -- If the pejorative “Camp Lovie” was aimed at former Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith’s summertime coddling of his veterans, then what do you call new coach Marc Trestman’s no-hit, fast-paced, meeting-heavy training camp?
Trestman Tech? The Marc Trestman School of Football Efficiency?
One thing you can’t call training camp at Olivet Nazarene University is easy. No Gentleman’s As here.
The new first-day conditioning test set the tone physically and it looks like the next couple weeks will test the players mentally.
“It’s challenging because the new stuff continues to go in, stuff we didn’t even do in mini-camps and OTAs,” receiver Earl Bennett said. “Coach Trestman continues to challenge us mentally and we’re up to the challenge.”
