ODU football hit the ground running on Monday morning. Preseason football camp is underway. They have 13 practices scheduled over the next three weeks. After that, it's the regular season routine.

The Monarchs are coming off a 10 win season in which they played in and won their first ever bowl game.

Last season they played a large number of underclassmen so they have an experienced squad returning. However, David Washington, their star quarterback, has graduated. As camp opens, there is an open competition for the QB position.

The regular season opens on September 2nd with a home game against Albany.
