Cougars Conclude First Practice

HOUSTON (Aug. 5) -- The 2000 University of Houston football season began this morning with the first team workout of the fall campaign.

Almost 30 freshmen and junior-college transfers worked out in shorts and helmets in the heat and humidity of a Houston summer. The Cougar newcomers were run through a series of minor drills, as well as special teams and seven-on-seven passing exercises. The newcomers will have practice to themselves until next Thursday, when the full squad will work out as a unit.

UH head coach Dana Dimel was pleased with his first official fall practice as the mentor of the Cougar football program.

"It has been a long seven months (since I arrived in Houston)," commented Dimel. "It was nice to get the first day under way. It was long awaited and long anticipated first day. I was pleasantly surprised with what I saw today."

Dimel pointed out that a pair of junior-college transfers, safety Hanik Milligan and wide receiver Ethan Ross, stood out after their first workouts with the Red and White. The first-year head coach believes most of the newcomers have a legitimate shot at playing time in 2000.

The Cougars were 7-4 last season, posting wins over Rice, North Carolina and LSU along the way. Houston kicks off the 2000 season by taking on intercity rival Rice on September 2, in Rice Stadium--a continuation of the Southwestern Bell Bayou Bucket.
