Commanders practice at Alamodome
SAN ANTONIO - The San Antonio Commanders continued training camp with their first practice at the Alamodome. For many of the players it was their first time on the field at their home stadium.
This was practice number 13 of 22 in training camp as they are just three weeks from kicking off their first season in the Alliance of American football.
For some players, like wide receiver Josh Stewart, their home turf is a familiar place. Stewart played his college football at UTSA, who plays its home games at the Alamodome. He enjoyed getting a chance to be back in his former stadium and has been impressing so far at camp.
"Josh has really come on, has a lot of upside just his talent is great and the more he plays, the better he'll get," head coach Mike Riley said.
"A lot of these guys have been playing football for a long time so I'm just soaking it all in, trying to be the best player I can be, taking it day by day, learning from the guys," Stewart added.
The Commanders kick off their season Saturday, Feb. 9 at 7 p.m. against the San Diego Fleet at the Alamodome.
