Rise and Grind: Gamecocks highlight winter workouts

South Carolina’s not resting on its laurels, 33 wins in the last three years and a Top 5 ranking to finish the 2013 season.

In search of their first SEC championship and a return trip to Atlanta for the first time in five years, the Gamecocks welcome the ‘hunter’ mentality as revealed in Tuesday’s ‘Gamecock Winter Workout’ highlight video released by the university — six minutes of raw weight room clips, practice field shots and indoor training footage.

Sophomore playmaker Pharoh Cooper, JUCO transfer Abu Lamin and a few other rising stars are featured prominently throughout as the Gamecocks usher in a new era under Steve Spurrier this spring with fifth-year senior Dylan Thompson taking over at quarterback and Jadeveon Clowney’s familiar face no longer with the program.

College football is back on Aug. 28 as the Gamecocks and Texas A&M Aggies square off to open SEC Network, a matchup of probable nationally-ranked teams. South Carolina rides the nation’s longest home winning streak at 18 games into Williams-Brice Stadium.

Steve Spurrier actually talked Texas A&M yesterday, “Got a $5 million coach so they must be pretty good, right?”

Who’s ready?
