Anthony Sarao talks Trojans' camp 

August, 18, 2014
LOS ANGELES -- If USC Trojans junior inside linebacker Anthony Sarao looks a little East Coast angry, it's because the New Jersey native and the rest of his teammates are trying to get through what head coach Steve Sarkisian affectionately calls the "dog days of camp.”

"We've got through the first week of two-a-days, and once you get past the first two-a-days, everybody starts getting grumpy,” Sarao said. "We hit the same people, but even if you're hitting the same people, you still have to keep a smile on your face.”

Sarao says the Trojans coaching staff understands the challenges of the "dog days” of camp, and has warned the Men of Troy that they won't get much compassion from any upcoming and potential opponents.
