    Rams make camp move official

    05/20/2008

    The Rams have made it official: They will hold training camp this summer at Concordia University in Mequon, Wis., about 15 miles north of Milwaukee.

    The selection of Concordia was first reported May 13 on STLtoday.com; the team issued an announcement Tuesday.

    Camp will run from July 25-Aug. 14.

    Also, another undrafted rookie has been added to the roster: Willie Williams, a 6-foot-3, 305-pound defensive tackle from the University of Louisville.

    Rams Set for Concordia
    Tuesday, May 20, 2008

    The search for a new training camp home is officially over, as the Rams and Concordia University made their summer partnership official Tuesday afternoon.

    Located in Mequon, Wis., Concordia University is approximately 15 miles north of downtown Milwaukee and will provide the Rams a new home after spending the past three summers at home in St. Louis.

    “We were looking for a facility, away from home, where we could train for the upcoming season,” coach Scott Linehan said. “Concordia University Wisconsin provided great fields and facilities that are critical to making an off-site training camp work.”

    Concordia was the frontrunner to be the new summer home for the Rams a few weeks ago after the team sent a delegation of coaches and staff members to investigate.

    The Rams looked at a potential return to Western Illinois University in Macomb, Ill., as well as the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.

    Ultimately, Concordia’s located near the shores of Lake Michigan combined with some impressive new facilities made it the clear cut choice.

    Rams Vice President of Operations John Oswald said Concordia provided the perfect mix of what the team was looking for in a training camp destination.

    “Head coach Scott Linehan and his staff were looking for a site that offered ideal living environment, practice conditions, and adequate facilities, plus a venue that was away from our home base,” Oswald said. “Concordia University Wisconsin fulfilled all of those objectives.”

    For fans looking to get away this summer, Concordia is about 395 miles from the Rams’ training facility in Earth City, Mo. Concordia is a Lutheran school which is home to about 6,000 students.

    And while the Rams are thrilled to have their summer destination finally set, Concordia is just as pleased to have the Rams coming to Mequon.

    “We are very pleased that the St. Louis Rams have selected Concordia University Wisconsin for this summer’s preseason training camp,” Concordia President Dr. Patrick T. Ferry said. “Our state-of-the-art athletic training facility in Mequon is the ideal environment to provide a successful camp for the players and coaches. We are looking forward to having them on our campus and working closely with their coaching staff to ensure a positive experience for everyone involved.”

    The Rams will report to Camp Concordia on July 24 with the first practice the next day. Camp will wrap up on Aug. 14.

    Thumbs up Re: Rams make camp move official / Sign D-tackle

    I think its a good move, it will keep everyones heads straight and away from the city lights...Focusing on whats at hand..I take it all as a step in the right direction. I also feel this season will produce some dramatic results..Looking at the depth chart its all pretty exciting, Almost wish we could keep em all and keep the Turk away.

    Ready to Rock !!

    You gotta pull for this kid. If he makes the team, he will be no less than the 5th Willie Williams to play in the NFL.

    I'm thinking about changing my last name to Williams and name a kid Willie. Sure fire way to get to the NFL apparently.

    I cannot find two words written about the guy - all that comes up is Miami reject.

    Maybe we get lucky again. Not a huge spread between Ryan (late 5th) and a FA.

    Uh...OK maybe there is , but Setterstrom was a seventh rounder.

    I just have to be first to say that anymore. We could say we signed Big Brown and someone would say "Great signing. Excellent depth".
