A Collection of Picture Postcards from Camp

Posted by jetsstaff on April 16, 2010 – 4:20 pm

Working for the Green & White means never a dull summer. Not when training camp means training camp in Cortland, N.Y.

Where other team photographers no doubt shrug when asked to complete their back-to-school assignments, I’ve got a nice "How I Spent My Summer" scenario. Coach Rex has once again moved the camp operation to SUNY Cortland’s central New York campus, and that means another nice place to go to work.

Cortland provides a fantastic setting for fostering team unity, away from the usual hustle and bustle. There’s rolling hills, fresh air, wonderful fans, Doug’s Fish Fry, lots of sunshine (except when it’s raining, of course), a nice stadium with great sightlines, and have I mentioned Doug’s Fish Fry? A place that helped shape last season’s exciting team.

I’d like to show you some of my favorite moments from our first trip up a year ago. I hope you enjoy them.

    What is all this about the power shifting to Miami because they got Marshall? That is hog wash the team to beat is still the Pats that is who we should worry about. As far as Miami 1 we have a better O line than them. 2 Yes Marshall is better than anyone we got but Braylon, Holmes & Cotch are better than Marshall & a bunch of nobodys. 3 I would much rather have Greene, LT & Leon than Brown (who is hurt every year) & a real old ricky williams. & thats just the O lets not talk about the d

    Can’t wait to get back up there. Sure its far away but its a great trip if fans can swing it. Cortland is a very cool town and the people are real nice. Just hope with Hard Knocks its not going to get crazy crowded this summer.

    Makes me wish my college started the field project earlier. Maybe if they did, the Jets would have chosen to come to Morrisville…I can dream. :P

    Just got back from a look at the new stadium. Its amazing. Its so much bigger inside than the old stadium. I think the old one could fit inside the new one. The video boards are great. Looking forward for that first game 8/16.

    Al – I’ve gone from Green&White to just green with envy! You have undoubtedly one of the best jobs going… Must be doubly exciting knowing you are watching and photographing the making of a champion team.

    Ira – you have no idea how lucky you are….. the only stadium I get to see is Raymond James (the Bucs) each day as I pass it on the way to work. Although I have seen some great games there including my all time favorite – the ‘flashlight’ game when Curtis threw the halfback option for the win. Hopefully I get to make a trip up this yr to see a game in the new stadium. Cant wait for the draft to see which pass rushing de/olb we add. Still hoping we can make trade for ATOGWE.Yes, I said ATOGWE!
