Coach Don Kerley has been a busy beaver preparing for the upcoming 2015 football season. The Longhorns have three passing camps theyll compete in following the two week dead period.
The Horns will be at Hampton High School on Friday and Saturday with nearly 15 other schools present.
On Tuesday theyll journey over to Abingdon to take part in a passing camp along with John Battle and the Admirals.
They finish up on Saturday in Lynchburg, Virginia at Liberty University.
Kerley knows the importance of getting his young kids on the field. One of those will be sophomore quarterback Nathan Arnold.
Weve got a lot of young players whom were counting on so taking part in these camps is important, said Kerley. It helps them get their feet wet plus they gain confidence. I like the kids we have this year because I know theyll play hard. Were excited and looking forward to getting out on the field. Theyve been very dedicated during the off season.
Youth Football Camp
Kerley and his staff will be conducting a youth football camp Saturday July 25th from 8 am until 12:30. Registration will begin at 7 am that morning.
The cost is $20 per participant. The camp is for ages 5 to 14.
Kerley and his staff will conduct sessions for both offense and defense. The campers will be taught fundamentals that will help them become better players.
Theyll be a 7-on-7 event to close the day.
You can contact Coach Kerley at the high school field house during the week for more information.
Final Call for players
Coach Kerley is asking anyone who is interested in playing to contact him at the field house. First year players will need to make arrangements to pick up their equipment.
