HOUSTON -- Saturday was a packed day at camp. 

The Houston Roughnecks faced off against the Tampa Bay Vipers in the first scrimmage of the year.

The team also invited local area kids for a Youth Clinic while parents and coaches attended a chalk talk with head coach June Jones alongside Tampa Bay head coach Marc Trestman and XFL Commissioner Oliver Luck.

"We got done what we needed to get done today. I think our guys are in better shape. We've been practicing hard, we're faster, and I think it showed today."

Going into the scrimmage, Jones had a single focus for the team. "The main thing today is player safety," he said. "We'll get a good practice in and make sure nobody gets hurt." 

All day, every day
