Steers football camp prepares future players
The future of the Graham Steers football team took advantage of the opportunity to learn from the coaching staff as the football team hosts its annual summer football camp this week.
Over 100 football players from 3rd though 9th grade met in split two-hour sessions on Newton Field for drills in offense, defense and special teams.
“This is a great opportunity for both the coaches and players,” Head Coach Kenny Davidson said. “We get a chance to see the future of the program and the kids get a chance to do drills guided by the coaching staff.”
Players in 3rd through 6th grade met in the first session and spent 45 minutes working on offensive drills followed by 45 minutes on defensive and special teams drills. The athletes also competed in 7-on-7 drills as well as a punt competition for daily prizes. The goal in the early session was to teach fundamentals of the game while having fun.
Following a 30-minute break, campers in 7th through 9th grade took part in more advanced drills. The players were able to participate in specialized one-on-one drills on both the offensive and defensive line as well as wide receiver versus defensive back drills.
The camp provides an opportunity for the athletes to participate in drills that the Steers’ will practice when two-a-day practices begin on Aug. 5.
