The Dayton/Miami Valley area has always been very important to the Bengals and we are 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. Prior to the practice, head coach Marvin Lewis will meet with the West Carrollton High varsity football team and coaching staff.
Marvin Lewis is excited to bring the team to Dayton. He said that he likes 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.
The Bengals have previously practiced in the Miami Valley at Centerville High School, at Dayton's Welcome Stadium and last year at Springboro High School.
