Redskins need to find new site for training camp


The Washington Redskins were left without a summer home yesterday, when Dickinson College officials ended their 32-year association with the team.

Because the Redskins hadn't decided whether they wanted to return to Carlisle, Pa., for training camp this summer, college officials rented out the dorms the team normally uses in July and August, and told the Redskins they no longer could accommodate them.

A team official said the Redskins still haven't decided where they will hold training camp.

When the Redskins announced 18 months ago that they wanted to build a stadium in Laurel, team owner Jack Kent Cooke said he'd shift camp to Frostburg State to show a commitment to Maryland.

But with the Laurel project in jeopardy, the Redskins haven't signed a contract at Frostburg. Team officials say other possibilities are Redskin Park in Ashburn, Va., or the University of Richmond, which previously tried to lure the Redskins.
