JC Youth Football League holds camp for children

By Matt Hill

For the third-straight year, a successful Johnson County Youth Football Camp took place at the JCHS Practice Football Field. On Saturday,
The Johnson County Youth Football League presented the camp with the JCHS Football Coaches and Players instructing the campers.
“”We had a good camp for the youth on a very hot day,” JCHS head coach Mike Atwood said. “We had about five of our guys and two or three of our coaches and I think we ended up with 42 or 43 kids. It was a good fun day.”
The camp taught these young Longhorns the basics of football and some fundamentals they will need.
“We taught them just the basic fundamentals and make it a fun day for them,” Atwood said. “It’s important for us because we’re the only school in the conference that draws from one Middle School or Youth league. The teams we play draw from a bunch of little league teams and at least two middle schools. It’s important for us to get our system into them early.”
The Longhorn football players also introduced the kids to the successful weight program at JCHS.
“We want to show them what it takes to be part of our football team, plus we knew it would be something they enjoy. Most of the young kids like to see what’s in the weight room and basically show them our basic lifts and agility drills.
