ECU Pirate fans got to see and feel what it's like to train like a Pirate football player.
Whitey Martin from Jacksonville and Rick Doub from California, were among those who signed up for coach Ruffin McNeill's fantasy football camp. They are both pushing 60!
This is the 3rd year the athletic department has put this on for those young and young at heart.
In all, 42 people went through tough drills, just like the team.
For Martin, it was a tough day, but he felt this gift given to him by his tail-gating buddies, was a special one. "Truthfully , there's a lot of purple and gold that has been spilled on this field and just being in the same place they are, look at me right now, just talking about it, gives me goosebumps, yeah it means a lot."
Each participant paid $150.00
Saturday, the ladies will hit the field for fantasy camp day.
