Youth learn football fundamentals at camp


Wisconsin senior Jake Current works with kids at camp

GREENVILLE – Over 160 youngsters signed up for the annual Matt Light Football Camp held Monday and Tuesday at Good Samaritan Stadium at Harmon Field in Greenville.

According to Larry Masters, camp coordinator and former football head coach of Greenville and Arcanum varsity football, 18 men volunteered their time to help teach the kids fundamentals of all aspects of the game. The instructors ranged from area football coaches to college players from Purdue, Iowa, and Wisconsin Badger Jake Current who attended the camp while playing for Troy.

This was the 21st year for what began as the All-Conference Football Camp and only the second year the free camp was held on Matt Light’s high school alma mater field.

“It is great to see the camp got to move to Harmon Field,” Light told The Early Bird. “It gives camp a genuine football feel.”

Kids going into grades two through nine spent two days learning defensive techniques, offensive teamwork and special teams, not to mention got some good conditioning in preparation for the upcoming 2014 season.
