WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina -- Winston-Salem State has its new-look helmets almost ready to unveil.
The helmets are all red with new decals complete with a new logo coming next week. They should be ready to go right before Sept. 3 and the opener at Bowman Gray Stadium against UNC Pembroke.
Coach Kienus Boulware and the Rams completed their camp Wednesday, and now the preparations in practice will be geared toward UNC Pembroke.
“Our camp went well, and we had a lot of competition really at all positions,” said Boulware, who will start his third season as head coach. “I like the way the guys got after it, and the energy level has been very high.”
With classes starting, Boulware said it’s a great time to eONnd the two-a-day workouts as practices will be scaled back to once a day. There will be a final scrimmage over the weekend, then the normal game-week approach will take hold Monday.
