Safety and fun the hallmark of 8-year program
Pig skins were flying, whistles were blowing and athletes were hitting the tackle bags as members of the Moffat County High School football team broke camp Wednesday. But the action on the MCHS practice field wasn’t in preparation for the upcoming season. Rather, it was designed to teach Craig’s budding grid stars basics of the sport. More than 50 local children in kindergarten through fifth grade participated in the Eighth Annual Big Blue Football Camp at MCHS this week. The two-day camp provided Craig and Moffat County youth with the opportunity to learn skills such as throwing, catching, blocking, kicking and tackling in a non-contact environment from more than 20 current MCHS players and coaches.
