ANDERSON, Ind. (Aug. 5, 2015) -- Colts fans poured into the stands at Anderson University for the annual training camp night practice Wednesday.

There's a lot of hype surrounding the team this year and it was clear in talking to fans that they're ready to see what the Colts can do.

"(Excited for) the new guys, definitely. I want to see (Frank) Gore," fan Jeremy Davis said.

"I may be getting an autograph by one of the players," young fan Madison Dirksen said.

Another fan, Ben Hiltunen, knew a thing or two about those autographs. A Michigan native, Hiltunen traveled to Anderson to see camp for a few days this year and had already racked up signatures on two small footballs and a helmet.

"I think (the camp) is really cool," Hiltunen said.

The camp's Colts City featured live music, games, and free giveaways, offering more for fans to do aside from seeing their favorite players up close.

This season is highly anticipated, with the team a favorite to get to the Super Bowl and big games, like one at home against the Patriots, giving the city a chance to cash in on the hype.

"It's a really good turnout. I think everyone's really excited about them this year," Davis said.

"I think they're looking really good," Hiltunen said.

No one knew that better than new linebacker Trent Cole's father, David Wilson, who showed up at camp to get a taste of what the Colts have to offer.

"They're going somewhere this year, yeah I believe it. My son does too," Wilson said.

If you want to see the team for yourself, Colts Camp runs through August 14. You can find a schedule of events at the link here.
