There will be a week off next week in the lead up to Fall Camp beginning Aug 5th. That means only 1 month after that till the SMU game. Its coming around very fast.

The off season accolades continue for Baylor. The Big 12 Conference released its All Big 12 team and 7 Baylor players made it; the most of any team in the conference. This was voted on by media pundits.

Upload of training clips.
July 2nd, 2015
Well the boys are off now and have wrapped up their training at home.
We got some good work done. Blake weighed in today at 322lb which is his heaviest and Sean weighed in at 296lb, also his heaviest.
They both got stronger, bigger and kept their conditioning up so they'll be in as good shape as could be hoped for when Fall camp starts in a month. They will start school again next week and be training with the team leading up to Fall camp. Its Summer in Waco, this is the hottest part of the year so many days will be up in the high 30's and into the 40's.
Some more training clips will get posted later.
July 1st, 2015
This is the last week before the boys head back to Waco. At this stage they are leaving home on Saturday, will arrive in Waco on Saturday night local time, 2nd Summer Session for school begins on Wednesday and there will be training during the week.
We're putting together some clips of some of the better lifts that the boys had while they were training in this block at home. Here is Sean with a PR on the limit for a backsquat double. On Friday we'll put up some more extensive footage of what has been a success period of training.
I'm always finding pics I haven't seen before.
Seems like the Dallas Morning News has a poor gauge on how things have worked on the Baylor football team roster judging by their Summer filler piece. In breaking down Baylor's top 25 players here is the comment on Blake at #19.
C'mon people, how about some accuracy in reporting! Right Guard is the position Blake has spent the LEAST amount of time practicing at. Left Guard, Left Tackle, Right Tackle and a little bit of Center are the positions Blake has practiced at. Left Guard being the position he started at all through the 2014 season and Fall camp; and Spring camp 2015.
If you're going to write something, get it right. 5 minutes of research would have explained this.
