The Mountain Lions added former Sacramento State quarterback Jeff Fleming and four other players, the team announced Thursday, increasing the number of players in training camp to 61.

Sacramento must reduce its roster to 54 players before the season opener Sept. 28 at Raley Field against the Omaha Nighthawks.

Last season, Fleming led the Hornets to a 29-28 upset of Oregon State in overtime in Corvallis, Ore. He completed 22 of 35 passes for 257 yards and three touchdowns against the Beavers.

In 2010, he set a school season record with 23 touchdown passes.

Also in camp for the Mountain Lions are former NFL veteran quarterback Josh Johnson and returning running back John David Washington, the son of Academy Award-winning actor Denzel Washington.

The Mountain Lions play three other home games this season: Oct. 10 vs. Las Vegas, Nov. 2 vs. Virginia and Nov. 7 vs. Las Vegas.
