Fans flock to Bengals practice in West Carrollton

WEST CARROLLTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The Cincinnati Bengals brought their training camp practice to West Carrollton High School Monday evening.

The team hit the field at 5:30 to the cheers of a standing room only crowd inside the 5,000 seat stadium.

“The Dayton/Miami Valley area has always been very important to the Bengals,” said Katie Blackburn, Bengals executive vice-president. “We’re pleased to offer fans from the area a more convenient opportunity to get a good look at the team as we continue to prepare for the season.”

Before it all kicked-off on the field, head coach Marvin Lewis and some players will met with the West Carrollton football team and coaches.

We like the opportunity to change things up, so meeting with the local high school team, then practicing on a brand new playing field in front of our fans in the Dayton area, will make for a terrific day of training camp,” Lewis said. “We are working hard in Cincinnati and look to take our practice on the road on Aug. 11 in West Carrollton.”

When practice wrapped up shortly after 7 p.m., players took time to sign autographs and meet the fans.

The event was free to all who attended.
