Wildcats begin second full week of training camp
The Cole and Jeannie Davis Indoor Sports Center was put to good use on Monday when the Arizona Wildcats kicked off another week of preseason training camp. With a thunderstorm hovering over the UA campus, the Wildcats kept their practice inside. It is monsoon season, after all.
The two Cats made available to speak to the media were wide receiver Drew Dixon and safety.
Dixon, a Tucson native and Sabino High School product, is listed at 6-foot-3, 205 pounds and is entering his redshirt sophomore season. Dixon appeared in seven games for the UA in 2018 as a special teams player, but is expected to be heavily involved in Arizona's wide receiver rotation along with several others.
Cooper, a 6-2 El Paso native, is entering his senior year at Arizona and will play the spur safety in Marcel Yates' defense.
Check out what both Wildcats had to say after a rainy Monday practice.
