Tucker, Bucs announce 2018 football preseason camp schedule

CHARLESTON, S.C. - Charleston Southern Head Coach Mark Tucker announced the 2018 football preseason camp schedule on Tuesday morning as the Buccaneers prepare for the team to report on Thursday, August 2.

CSU will hold 14 practices through fall camp prior to classes starting on August 20, as the Bucs get ready for their 2018 opener on September 1 at Florida. Kickoff on the SEC Network is set for 7:30 p.m. ET.

The Bucs enter the preseason camp picked third overall in the Big South Conference Preseason Football Poll as announced at the conference media day in Charlotte this past week. CSU returns 18 starters from last season's team with 10 players recognized with preseason All-Conference accolades.

Senior defensive lineman Solomon Brown and junior wide receiver Kameron Brown represented the Bucs at the conference's media day and the duo will play a large part in CSU's successes this season. Joining the duo on the All-Conference team were defensive lineman Johnny Robinson, linebacker J.D. Sosebee, defensive backs Shadarius Hopkins and Brandon Rowland, and specialists Taz Lindsey, Tyler Tekac, Kyle Reighard, and Ethan Ray.

CSU will look to make strides and continue its success in Tucker's second year at the helm of the program. The Bucs posted a 6-5 record in 2017 with key wins over Gardner-Webb, Presbyterian, and a season-finale win against FBS-bound Liberty.

Practice starts on Friday, August 3. CSU will hold its first scrimmage on Saturday, August 11. The full camp schedule is listed below.
