PITTSBURGH (NEWSRADIO 1020 KDKA) — Can you believe training camp for the Steelers is upon us once again?

The players begin reporting to St. Vincent College in Latrobe this afternoon and there’s lots of buzz in the air as fans gear up for another season of tackles and touchdowns. Casey Hampton became the first Steeler to arrive around noon.

KDKA AM’s Larry and John talked to St. Vincent College’s Don Orlando this morning about what fans can expect when visiting training camp.

“Things are buzzing out here in Latrobe in anticipation of the Steelers arrival today and the first practice open to the public tomorrow afternoon,” Orlando, the college’s director of public relations, said.

This year, Orlando said fans can expect very few changes from year’s past.

“Basically, there are no changes this year in the format or layout of camp. Parking is still free and as people enter the St. Vincent’s property, security guards will be available to direct them to parking areas that are pretty near to the practice field,” said Orlando. “The field is surrounded by a security fence and people are welcome to gather really anywhere around that security fence or in the Chuck Noll field stadium.”

There are some restricts fans should know about though.

“The only thing we ask people to do is to leave their dogs and pets at home, leave their alcohol and barbecue grills at home; but if they want to bring picnic baskets, chairs or blankets. We recommend people bring beverages to stay cool. We also sell some beverages and snacks for people who don’t want to pack.”

The first practice open to the public is Friday at 2:55 p.m. There’s only one night practice – Aug. 5 at 7 p.m. at Latrobe Memorial Stadium. The Steelers first pre-season game is Aug. 12 and camp ends Aug. 17.
