On June 8-9, 2018 the Kansas State University Football program hosted its High School Fundamental Camp, and this year eight of our Christ Prep Varsity players were able to attend.
The camp focused on intensity, improvement of skills, and an emphasis on being positive. The K-State Football coaching staff puts great emphasis on fundamentals, work habit, and the discipline needed to become a proficient player. At the same, the coaches work to help develop the movement and change of direction skills which will make our players better athletes in all respects.
Players were divided by their respective positions and worked with the K-State coaches to learn better technique and then competed against other players in 7-on-7 competition which gave them the opportunity to practice the new techniques they just learned.
“This was a great opportunity for our players to compete against many other players from around the region and to be coached by a top college coaching staff,” Christ Prep Head Coach Tom Hurley said.
K-State Coach Bill Snyder spoke to the boys several times and both challenged and encouraged them. According to K-State, the goals for this camp were as follows:
- Gain an appreciation for the game
- Become an improved player though the development of excellent techniques
- Learn how to play hard, be competitive, and have fun!
