WOODS CROSS – For the fourth consecutive year, the Woods Cross High School football camp was a complete success.
As young participants lined up for three days worth of drills, sprints and other activities, young football players got the opportunity to get in close with their older idols.
They also got to learn a thing or two about football.
Much like last year’s camp, which had nearly 140 athletes in attendance, the camp was run almost entirely by the Wildcats’ football players.
During the three-day camp where youth got to mix in with the current Wildcats’ roster, the younger generation learned some of the basic drills and skills necessary to compete on the football field.
Drills ranged from offense to defense, and were spread out among positions such as wide receivers and defensive backs, offensive and defensive line, and running backs and linebackers.
While some of the younger players got to hit tackling dummies, others got the chance to run through receiving routes. Others were given the opportunity to learn the proper way to hold a football, giving the pigskin a nice tuck underneath the arm, and others were sent through drills such as the cone, the shuffle, and the 40-yard dash.
The trio of quarterbacks for the Wildcats’ 2013 football season taught quarterback basics such as throwing, proper grip and proper motion, to name a few.
The regular pre season kicks off on Friday, Aug. 23 against Maple Mountain on the road.
