MARTIN, Tenn. – Along with the summer heat of August comes the opening of camp for collegiate football programs all around the country with the University of Tennessee at Martin being no different.

The Skyhawks are set to report to campus on Thursday, Aug. 3 and will hold 24 practices leading up to their season-opener on Thursday, Aug. 31. The team will conduct three intrasquad scrimmages (Aug. 12, Aug. 19, and Aug. 24). All practices are open to the public.

The Skyhawks begin their 12th season under the direction of head coach Jason Simpson who has won a total of 72 games in his tenure, ranking as the eighth most victories in OVC history. Simpson leads a Skyhawk squad which finished last season in second place at 6-2 in the OVC. Included in the team’s strong season was the program’s retention of the coveted Sgt. York Trophy.

UT Martin will open the season on Thursday, Aug. 31 against Clarion University. The schedule features a 11-game slate which includes five home games against Clarion University, Tennessee State (Sept. 23), Murray State (Oct. 7), Eastern Illinois (Oct. 28) and Jacksonville State (Nov. 11). The Skyhawks will also take on non-conference foes Ole Miss (Sept. 9) and Chattanooga (Sept. 16).
