The Lafayette and Lehigh football teams are already hard at work preparing for the upcoming season, both began team workouts this week.

The first signs of fall are here already. Football camps are underway for a couple of area college teams. Both of the FCS teams in the Lehigh Valley have opened workouts and both are hoping they'll be playing into December after winning a Patriot League Championship. Lafayette won the title last year, it was part of a season that was really good in league play, and a real struggle outside of league pl. One of the major differences once league play arrived, was the play of then freshman quarterback Drew Reed. He's back this year as a sophomore with plenty of big game experience, and many of his favorite weapons are back too, so there's plenty of optimism for the Leopards.  At Lehigh, there are a few more question marks, but there is a lot of talent in the program as always and the Mountain Hawks are excited.The seniors on this team won a title as freshmen, but most didn't see the field that year, so it's a group that is extremely motivated to win one this year after losing to Lafayette a season ago.
