Bengals, Georgetown College agree to new deal

The Bengals and Georgetown (Ky.) College have agreed on a one-year extension of the team’s contract to hold training camp at the college’s East Campus Athletic Complex. The agreement now runs through 2009.

“We’re happy to announce an agreement to extend our relationship with Georgetown College,” said Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis. “We like the traditional setup of conducting training camp away from our in-season facility, and, really, the setup at Georgetown’s athletic complex is perfect for all of our camp needs.

“Additionally, we can’t say enough good things about the college’s staff members who run camp for us. Not only can they do just about anything we would ever need them to, but they also make us feel very much at home.”

The Bengals have held training camp in Georgetown since 1997. Players and coaches will report to this year’s camp on July 27, with the team’s first practice scheduled on July 28.

“Our relationship with the Cincinnati Bengals organization continues to be a very positive thing for the college, and we’re glad they’re confident enough in us to extend the agreement for another year,” said Eric Ward, Georgetown College athletic director. “We have a great working relationship with the Bengals’ staff and coaches, and know what they expect from us when they arrive for camp.”
