Despite being limited to only half the field because of construction and summer workouts going on around the school, the football camp still managed to host the large group without a hitch.
The camp taught the basic fundamentals of the game including running, passing and blocking but also went into more detailed drills for each position.
The first day of camp was dedicated to offensive positions and the second day focused on the defensive side of the ball.
Despite the drills, CHS Head Coach Hal Lamb also did his best to make sure they kids were having fun in the scorching Georgia heat which easily reached 90-degrees before the end of camp around 11:30 a.m.
“It is real important at a young age to realize that football is fun,” said Lamb. “It is hard work but it is not always hard work.”
Near the end of the camp, Lamb hosted competitions which included speed, agility, two-on-two, and an obstacle course.
All the Calhoun assistant coaches helped with the camp. Players joined in after their morning workout including Alex Kirby, Trent Frix, Hunter Knight, Heath Everett and Gabe Freeman.
As for his players, Lamb hopes they understand that kids around the community look up to them as role models.
“I want them to know how to interact with the kids and maybe down the road one or two will develop into a coach,” Lamb added.
