Hot tempers and temperatures during team training

WEST POINT — Four scorching days of sunshine and humidity at Army preseason camp have players hot under the collar.

As temperatures climbed back into the 90s, a few fights broke out during Saturday’s camp activities, which the coaches and players immediately took care of.

“Oh, it happens,” said head coach Jeff Monken. “It’s a physical match and the emotions are sometimes strong. Sometimes guys fight. I don’t have much patience for that. It’s just a waste of time so we took care of it. It wasn’t a problem the rest of the day.

“We’re getting competitive,” linebacker Leo Lowin said. “It’s the first time we’ve been in competition for a long time. It’s hard not to have that competitive edge when you’re out there attacking. You know, it’s just something that happens in football.
