A final reminder that McCook Bison football team will be hosting the annual Championship Football Camp starting on Monday.

The camp will feature many of the players that helped McCook to Class B state semifinals four consecutive seasons. This camp is designed for those entering grades two through eight this fall.

Boys and girls are welcome.

Cost is $50 and registrations will be accepted until camp starts accept registrations up till camp starts. McCook head coach Jeff Gross and some of the Bison championship staff will conduct this camp with recent players assisting.

Gross and his staff would like to give the youth of the area an introduction and understanding of McCook Bison football.

The current and past players take pride in their program and they would like to pass this on to the next generation of football players.McCook Bison football operates on one main philosophy, “WE ARE ONE”, and this is an opportunity to be a part of our football family.

This is a non-contact camp. All campers will be taught beginning fundamentals of playing football. Skills taught include, passing, receiving, running, cutting, punting, kicking, blocking and tackling.

No equipment is necessary. Cleats are not needed.

All campers will receive instruction, and a camp football.

Shorts or sweatpants will be needed along with cleats or shoes. The camp takes place each day 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday through Friday at McCook High School’s practice field just east of MHS.

Again, registration is open until Monday when camp begins. Forms may be picked up at the Sports Shoppe, McCook High School and other McCook schools.
