Bubba Sullivan, the NHS head coach now in his 20th season, held his annual football camps this week at NHS as the Raiders prepare for another season on the gridiron.
Players in grades nine through 12 went early in the morning to avoid the heat, while the middle school camp was held immediately after.
"We know we're going to get better practices and have a better time if it's not super hot," Sullivan
The middle school camp featured 130 players, a larger group than Sullivan
has normally had.The emphasis in the camp was work on fundamentals.
Players worked on speed and agility drills.Lineman did 1-on-1 stand-up drills, receivers ran passing routes and an added emphasis on both sides of the ball was staying low.
"We were real pleased with the number of kids that were there," Sullivan
"We talked to the kids a lot about the fact that it's camp, but in many ways, it's the start of the season," Sullivan
also said he
was impressed with the talent he
has back on the offensive and defensive lines.
