News & Notes:
INAUGURAL NFL FLAG LEAGUE A HUGE SUCCESS!
The players took part in several individual drills each day with current Blue Flame players and coaches. These non-contact drills included “Heads-Up” Tackling stations along with blocking drills, and throwing/catching drills.
YOUTH DAY CAMP
Current football players, Tyler Gravely, Cole Seaborn, Braden Gravely, Jeb Kelley, Logan Lusk, and Brandon Batson assisted the Blue Flame coaching staff with the camp.
Following the morning practice session, campers ate lunch with the current players, watched a highlight video of the 2014 season, and took a tour of the PHS athletics facilities, school, and stadium.
The second practice session featured more fundamental drills followed by a Punt, Pass, and Kick competition. The campers then took a popsicle and Gatorade break before playing several games of Flag Football to end camp.
