CLARKSDALE - More than 30 National Football League hopefuls turned out Tuesday to brush up on their athletic skills at Coahoma Community College’s annual two-day Football Camp on CCC’s practice field.

Although all young athletes from five years of age to high school warmed up together for stretching and quickness drills, they were divided later into several age camps.

In charge of the overall event was Athletic Director/Head Football Coach Freeman Horton. Other supervising coaches were William Kirksey, Kendrick Travis, Sean Norris, Kenneth Strong assisted by numerous former Tiger players and supporters.

Although summer temperatures climbed during the morning, a cooling breeze tempered the thermostat, and staff members stayed busy dispensing water and sports drinks in between drills.

Young players limber up with warm-up exercises.

Agility improves.

Safely carrying the ball is important.

Coach Horton even gives pointers on end zone etiquette following a touchdown.
