Stories are already beginning to emerge from camp.
Brian Banks launched a blog Monday, entitled "My Journey". Banks was a high-profile recruit from USC before false charges led to a five-year prison sentence. He's been exonerated and reported to training camp on his Birthday. Monday, he wrote: "As I step onto that field for training camp, I will do it with the mindset of a winner. I went to hell and back and I survived a better man."
