ATHENS, Ohio -- The Ohio football team donned full pads for the first time during its 2018 fall camp today at Peden Stadium as the Bobcats opened their second week of preseason practice.

Jake Hromada and the OhioBobcatTV crew chatted with redshirt senior defensive lineman Kent Berger (Mentor, Ohio) after practice. The co-captain discussed being a leader, former players that helped him grow as a leader, a workout he'll never forget and the team having a target on its back as favorite to win the Mid-American Conference.

In 2017, Berger finished with 19 total tackles -- including four for loss and two sacks -- over 12 games.

Ohio will open the 2018 season on Sept. 1 with a 2 p.m. ET matchup against Howard at Peden Stadium. The contest will be broadcast on ESPN+. Click here for ticket information or call 1-800-575-CATS (2287).
