USC players and coaches getting in summer conditioning work

The USC Trojans football team has been progressing through the school’s phased return to campus and can now participate in on-field conditioning activities with coaches present. The ultimate layout of the 2020 season might still be in question, but the Trojans are doing everything they can to prepare for what right now stands to be a conference-only schedule.

On Monday, the school gave a quick glimpse as to what those workouts look like, featuring videos and photos from the session.

Quarterback Kedon Slovis and wide receiver Drake London turned in phenomenal freshmen seasons and are looking to take things to another level as sophomores.

The defense will likely be the key to the season for the Trojans, as more production is expected from all three levels with a number of veterans returning and optimism regarding how quickly defensive coordinator Todd Orlando’s system can be implemented with positive results.

Cornerback Greg Johnson, defensive end/linebacker Drake Jackson and safety Talanoa Hufanga could all be big pieces for the Trojans.
