MILLEDGEVILLE, GA-- Over 45 young football players spent the week working with the Georgia Military College football coaching staff. Day three of the five-day camp ended Wednesday with a punt, pass and kick contest.
Campers were divided up by age and rotated through stations. Winners from each age group got a trophy, but they are not done yet.
"General fundamentals of playing football: speed, quickness, change of direction, explosion, things of that nature," said GMC head coach Bert Williams. "Then we also will do a tackling circuit one day where we teach the fundamentals of tackling to the kids. We want to make sure they are doing a good job, doing it safely."
This is the sixth year Williams has put on the camp. He says it's all about reaching out to the community.
"We kind of did this and we keep it relatively inexpensive just to kind of see the kids in the community. We bring them out here and let them know a little bit about GMC football. In the past we've had some of our pro athletes that were able to come by and they've spent time talking with our kids."
The cost was $140 for the week-long camp.Action ends Friday.
