USC football will begin fall camp on Friday as the Gamecocks look to build on a Duke’s Mayo Bowl victory over North Carolina to cap the 2021 campaign. There is a lot of buzz surrounding the program, especially at quarterback, where Oklahoma transfer Spencer Rattler is set to take over the offense.
On Thursday, head coach Shane Beamer met with the media to preview the start of practice. The 2nd-year head coach confirmed that punter Kai Kroeger is out for the start of preseason camp, though he is optimistic that Kroeger will be back for game one. Beamer also bragged about the experience of the offensive line, what retiring DT Rick Sandidge’s role will be with the program, and how pumped he is that Gamecock fans are excited about the 2022 season.
