Some one hundred youngsters ages five to twelve have been learning more about football during the first ever Tiger Pride Football Camp this week at DeKalb County High School
USA certified football coaches and other volunteers have spent the week teaching kids the basics of the game. "We've been wanting to put one of these together for quite a few years and with John (Kilgore's) help this year and the organization we've got one going and we've had a hundred kids out here each and every day and it's just a great thing to be able to instill that Tiger pride and a little football knowledge in these young guys," said DCHS Football Coach Steve Trapp.
"We've got a lot of our high school guys, a lot of guys who graduated last year and in years past who have come out to help us. They are actually running the drills for us. The Junior Pro coaches are here. Its helping all levels of football here in DeKalb County," said Coach Trapp.
"Football has got popular in the last four or five years," said John Kilgore, who helped organize the camp. "Coach Steve (Trapp) has turned the program around at DCHS and its got more kids interested," he said.
On Thursday, the last day of camp, a scrimmage game will be played for each age group.
