Greenbriar Resort hosting Saints in first NFL training camp

Updated:
WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, WEST VA (WVUE) -

The Greenbriar Resort in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia is home to the 2014 Saints training camp.

This is the first time White Sulphur Springs has hosted an NFL training camp, but the staff is ready for the Black and Gold and the Who Dat Nation.

"We've looked at a variety of models. The Redskins are probably the closest version to what's happening here," said resort President Jeff Kmiec. "They also train off-site at considerable distance from where they play, and we're looking at numbers in the many thousands during midweek and the tens of thousands during the weekend. We're prepared for a crowd, and we can't wait to see it happen."

When told that the Saints fans are a far cry from the PGA audience the resort usually sees, Kmiec said he and his staff are ready.

"Well, I'm assuming they don't have a golf clap, so it'll be a different crowd than what the PGA Tour brings. But we're familiar with Who Dat, and we're familiar with the Who Dat Nation, so we're excited to have them here as well."

Saints fans always travel well, and they'll be well represented for the next three weeks in West Virginia.
