What to watch for: Jackson State training camp

JACKSON, Mississippi -- A new coach was hired, another recruiting class was signed, spring ball finished months ago and summer conditioning is done.

Another offseason is in the books at Jackson State. With training camp kicking off on Tuesday, the focus is on actual football now.

Here's are some things to watch for as the Tigers, who are coming off a 3-8 season, progress through training camp this next month.

A kicker to count on

Good, reliable kickers aren’t the easiest to come by in the SWAC. Jackson State had a good one last season with Ryan Deising, who connected on 16 of his 21 field goal attempts and made 24 of his 28 extra points.

Deising was a first-team All-SWAC selection, but his eligibility has been exhausted, so it’s up to the Tigers to find a suitable replacement.
