Yesterday, the Miami Dolphins
held their first full scrimmage of the 2012 training camp over at Sun Life Stadium. Throughout the day, players rotated in our with different packages and groupings, such as the first team offense taking on the second team defense. Obviously, the focal points were the three quarterbacks competing for the starting job, David Garrard
, Matt Moore, and Ryan Tannehill
However, that was not the only noticeable group running around the field. All over Sun Life Stadium, NFL Films crews were recording the practice for the upcoming episode of HBO's Hard Knocks. The show will follow the Dolphins throughout training camp, giving fans a chance to see the inside workings of the franchise. The cameras are allowed anywhere within the team's facilities and throughout practice. The first episode of the show will air this Tuesday on HBO.
During Saturday's scrimmage, XFINITY Sports Social Media personailty, Austin Schindel, was able to get on the field and talk to some of the players and personnel around the scrimmage. If you remember, Austin was the winner of last yea'r contest, run through SB Nation and here on the Phinsider, to become the face of XFINITY's sports social media content. He's a friend of the site, and he provided me with the audio he was able to grab while at the scrimmage.
Here's the first of those interviews, a talk with Matt Dissinger, Feature Producer for Hard Knocks.
